Cornish Seals and Dolphin Delights in Newquay

 

 Merky Water after storms revealing Dolphins at the last moment

 Bottlenose Dolphins in Newquay

Dolphins put in an amazing appearance today at the end of a Seal Survey and completely stole the show.

Here is the video Chris (Atlantic Diver's skipper) took

Six Celtic Bottlenose Dolphins appeared like magic at our bow emerging from the brown muddy sea. The water visibily down west was still poor unlike off Newquay , where the sea was back to azure blue as the storm merk has cleared. It made spotting the 3.2m Dolphins fairly tricky but we managed to captured a few of their surface breaths on film to share with you.

Chris slowed down our speed to a gentle crawl as they had 1 juvenile and what looked like last year's calf with them. The adults became impatient and began to use their tail flukes to physically thump "Atlantic Diver's" twin hulls from side to side, (a phenomenum we have experienced before) as if to say ...hurry up we want to play. Chris kept a steady and sure path as is suggested in WiSe ( wildlife safe operator guidelines) and left the pod after a short while to continue our seal survey.

Breeding Sea Bird...Guillemot Sitting in rafts on the sea

A solatary pretty female Grey Seal popped her head up during all of the Dolphin Dancing as if to say .."Hey this is supposed to be a Seal Show!" but she wasn't alone as we saw other Seals in various stages of moulting as we travelled the coast.

Seals Hauled out .. Moulting..an itchy job!

It was a fantastic day at sea, starting off before sun up. The Breeding Seabirds are back in good numbers which was pleasing to see after the huge amount that have been washing up on the North Cornwall Coast dead , after the destructive and seemingly never ending storms. It was most satisfying to see them today in the Glorious sunshine perched on their ledges ready for breeding.
