Sightings

To give you an accurate idea of what you might see on your trip, we list all the animals we see every day we run trips rather than just a selection of our 'best' sightings every few days. It would take too long to individually list the species of seabirds we see each day so unless there are exceptional numbers of a species or an unusual sighting, we list them as 'seabirds'. Sightings archives for 2007 and 2008 are linked at the bottom of the page.

September 2009
30th September
 
Another very quiet day out there leaving us with just seabirds and an extremely antisocial bull seal (he popped up for about two seconds) to look at. It was a beautiful day though -image, image- I never thought I'd say it, but we need a return of windy weather, rough sea and spring tides for a while to stir everything back up again!
29th September
 
After the wonderful run of a lot of September, it wasn't really happening today - seabirds and distant views of a very shy seal today.
28th September
 
Just the one trip today, but a really good one - we saw a large pod of common dolphins containing adults, calves and juveniles. There seemed to be about forty or so dolphins (it was hard to tell) and we got excellent views of them as they were feeding as a group, though they weren't interested in us at all! Loads of photos and these are among the best -image, image, image, image, image, image, image- We also saw a small ocean sunfish -image-, at the surface being pecked by herring gulls, grey seals -image, image, image- and seabirds.
27th September

25th September
 
We only did one trip today - an Ocean Discovery - but it was a great trip to be on! We saw a minke whale -image- a pod of offshore bottlenose dolphins 6-8 animals in the group -image, image, image- These are are much wider ranging than the inshore pods of bottlenose dolphins for which we have built up photo id catalogues. We also saw 2 different groups of harbour porpoises a group of 6 and then 2. There was a skipping ocean sunfish and grey seals -image- If all this wasn't enough we had some great seabird sightings too including sooty shearwaters -image- and great skuas harrassing guls, fulmars and shearwaters -image, image- Also a dolphin was spotted at the Mackerel Sky Cafe (a great place for a post trip snack!) -image-

18th September
 
Harbour porpoises maybe up to 10 (hard to tell exact numbers because they were spread over quite a large area and feeding on fish deeper down so only intermittently surfacing) -image, image-. We saw a grey seal -image- and seabirds as well. It was a still day in west Cornwall today Trinity house made a delivery to the Wolf Rock lighthouse while we were there -image- and there were a few sailing boats on the move -image-. Here's a picture of some of the cheery turnstones which hang around the harbour.
17th September

Grey seals and seabirds on a windy, chilly day. Talk about yin and yang...
13th September
 
Today was a wonderful day to be a boat skipper - blue skies, sunshine and calm sea with a fab selecction of wildlife on display. We saw two minke whales, about twenty six harbour porpoises, loads of gannets, compass and moon jellyfish, grey seals and best of all some energetic and sociable common dolphins. They caused huge excitement on this evening's trip as they played round the boat and bow rode alongside. There was also a very reliable report by some local sailors of a leatherback turtle near Praa Sands (very exciting and right at the top of the wish list!) Of course the new camera isn't here yet! One of our guests today has kindly sent some of the pictures she snapped during the first trip; thank you Jehane - harbour porpoises, image, image, image, image - grey seals, image.
12th September
 
We saw harbour porpoises on all three of our trips today in group sizes varying from 4 to 12 the total for the day was 26. No images as we are still waiting for our replacement camera to arrive. Some of our guests got a good shot so I'll put it up if they send it through. We also saw grey seals, a variety of seabirds and a number of compass jellyfish.
11th September
 
Very choppy today and not conducive to wildlife spotting. We saw seabirds including lots of diving gannets. No pictures as we managed to break our camera. The new one should be here in a few days
10th September
 
Today we saw a group of 6 harbour porpoises on our morning and again on our afternoon trip -image, image, image, image, image, image-. It was probably the same group made up of 4 adults and two juveniles. They were feeding under diving gannets both times. We also saw grey seals on the rocks and in the water and a variety of seabirds.
9th September
 
A basking shark (it was quite distant and kept going under the surface so no picture today), grey-seals -image, image- and seabirds.
7th September
 
The weather finally calmed a bit and we were rewarded with some great sightings. We saw 2 minke whales feeding and milling around the boat one adult and one juvenile -image, image, image- they stayed with us for quite a while and in the end it was us who left them. The adult surfaced a number of times right next to the boat which was great. We also saw a lone common dolphin (very strange to see them on their own) -image- we saw an ocean sunfish and grey seals -image-. We had some good seabird sightings today as well including storm petrels and balearic shearwaters -image, image-

August 2009
30th August
 
"Interesting" conditions today with fog and south westerly winds lumping up the sea. We managed to sneak out for one trip and were rewarded with 4 basking sharks -image- and thousands of seabirds especially fulmars and gannets (the fog disorientated them, giving us fabulous views) -image, image- as well as a great skua and storm petrels.
29th August
 
A lovely sunny day! All day long! We saw basking sharks on all four of our trips today 13 sharks in total -image, image- We also saw grey seals -image- and seabirds -image- including storm petrels
27th August
 
We set out very early today to try and beat the weather but lost the battle. We managed to get our first two hour trip done in increasingly choppy conditions and had to turn the second into a one hour, sadly despite recieving a report of a basking shark and sunfish further to the west. Lots of gannets around though.
25th August

21st August
 
We were really pleased today to see the larger group of bottlenose dolphins -image, image, image- and great views of a sunfish -image- and seals -image, image- in a decidedly moderate sea (for "moderate" read "pretty bumpy"). We saw the dolphins from the pier before we left on the second trip, then found them during the trip as they swam eastwards, and then at the end of the day on the Bay Discovery we saw them playing near the promenade in the deepening twilight.
18th August
 
The wind blew up today making the sea very lumpy. We saw grey seals -image- and seabirds -image, image- today
17th August
 
Ocean sunfish -image- grey seals -image, image- and seabirds
16th August
 
We had a report of 300+ common dolphins heading west this morning just before our first trip. We headed out as quick as we could and managed to find a few of the stragglers still in the area - the big pod had moved on. We saw them on two out of three trips today the first sighting being excellent and the second being spoiled slightly by another, allegedly WISE accredited, operator. Here are the images we got of the common dolphins today -image, image, image, image, image, image, image- we also saw an ocean sunfish, a Portuguese man-o-war, grey seals -image, image- and seabirds -image-
14th August

Great views of harbour porpoises again today on two out of three trips -image, image, image- . We also saw grey seals in a few different places but unfortunately witnessed some seal disturbance. Maybe, hopefully it was unintentional -image, image, image-. We saw a good variety of seabirds as well.
10th August
 
Today we saw harbour porpoises - not a long viewing but they came close as they passed us. We also saw a grey seal -image- and seabirds -image, image-. Some of the boats in the Fastnet race passed close by today -image, image-
9th August
 
The harbour porpoises returned today and we had good sightings on two out of three trips -image, image, image, image- we also saw lots of grey seals -image, image, image- and seabirds.

5th August
 
There was a big 3 - 4 metre swell running today with huge rolling waves making for some exciting trips. We saw harbour porpoises feeding under gannets in three different places although it was hard to spot them in the waves and pictures were very difficult to snap. We also saw grey seals -image, image- and seabirds including lots of storm petrels -shags-. The swell didn't put the day boats off fishing in the runnelstone tidal race -image-
4th August
 
Lovely views of a feeding harbour porpoise -image-, a grey seal -image-, a Portuguese-man-o-war and seabirds

1st August
 
We had some great views of feeding harbour porpoises again today 7 in total in two groups -image, image, image, image, image- we also saw grey seals -image- and seabirds including storm petrels.
July 2009
30th July
 
We had a good day for harbour porpoise sightings today, seeing them on three out of four trips in numbers of up to 6 at a time. The first sighting saw them feeding under gannets which were dropping out of the sky on fish. After a while it all broke up only for the porpoises to re-herd the fish starting the whole thing off again. We watched them do this several times. The next sighting was more fleeting at the end of a trip. Then on our evening trip we had the best view of all with them lazily rolling over close to the boat for 10 minutes or so -image, image, image-. We also saw grey seals -image, image, and seabirds including storm petrels and lots of diving gannnets -image-.
29th July
 
After waiting for the torrential rain to pass we snuck out for a couple of trips in the rolling swell this evening -image- and were rewarded. We had some lovely views of a group of 4 harbour porpoises feeding -image- we also saw seals and seabirds including a gannet feeding frenzy -image, image-

20th July
 
4 Bottlenose dolphins - image, image - (images are of this group of four from another time) they put on a lovely display for us first of all flipping sea bass and then coming over to leap and swim around the boat. It was Cookie and Sleekie with two juvenile companions. We also saw a basking shark, lots of grey seals in different places and seabirds including puffins and Balearic shearwaters. No pictures today as I got the camera very wet the other day and it's not working very well.
18th July
 
3 Harbour Porpoises - 2 adults and a calf- they were too quick for the camera today so no pictures, an ocean sunfish, grey seals -image, image- and seabirds -image- including lots of Manx shearwaters and some common scoters.
16th July
 
A harbour porpoise, grey seals and seabirds - lots of Manx shearwaters and gannets around today. No pictures today as it was raining all day and we didn't want to wreck the camera.
10th July
 
Bottlenose dolphins heading west fairly swiftly. A couple came back to check us out giving some nice views. Altogether there were between 6 and 10 in the group including some youngsters although at a distance it was hard to establish exact numbers. We tracked them at a distance for a while and had to be content with mostly distant views -image, image-. 5 ocean sunfish this morning -image- We also saw grey seals in a number of places -image, image- and seabirds.
9th July
 
A couple of ocean sunfish -image- lots of grey seals -image, image, image, image- and seabirds.
8th July
 
Today started off being fairly windy and choppy. We saw harbour porpoises - just a glimpse for some passengers on the first trip but fantastic views for everybody at the end of the day -image, image, image- . Everybody had good views of grey seals -image, image, image- and seabirds including lots of Manx shearwaters and diving gannets -image-
4th July
 
Windy and choppy again today but we managed to squeeze in a 1 hour trip before it got too bad. We saw grey seals -image, image- and seabirds. There were lots of diving gannets and evidence of plankton so the basking sharks could be still around but deeper underwater. The plankton is attracting lots of smaller fish so hopefully some bigger stuff will follow.
3rd July
 
It was windy and very choppy today so we could only do 1 hour trips but we still saw lots of ocean sunfish -image- grey seals -image, image- and seabirds.
2nd July
 
4 ocean sunfish -image- grey seals -image- and seabirds -image-
June 2009
29th June

We also saw grey seals -image- and a variety of seabirds.
21st June
 
A basking shark -image- grey-seals -image, image, image- and seabirds
20th June
 
We had some great views of four feeding harbour porpoises today. We haven't seen them for a while but looking back at our records June is often a quiet month for porpoises. It might be that they head off somewhere more sheltered to have their calves, returning in late June and early July. This sighting fits in with that theory because among the group was a mother with a very small recently born calf -image, image, image, image, image-. We also saw grey seals and seabirds
19th June
 
Choppy again today with big west swell. We saw an ocean sunfish -image- and a variety of seabirds -image-.
18th June

It fed right past the boat, a mini version of the larger sharks. Today's pictures of the sharks -image, image, image-. We also saw grey seals -image, image- and seabirds.
13th June
 
There are still a lot of basking sharks around we saw a good number again today and had reports of breaching sharks a sign that courtship is underway. Here are today's pictures -image, image- we also saw 2 ocean sunfish -image-, grey seals -image, image- and seabirds -image-

9th June
 
Loads of basking sharks today from 3m sharks to 8m sharks -image, image, image- grey seals and seabirds -image-
7th June
 
The strong northerlies have made the sea very choppy and this seems to have pushed the plankton deeper under the water so the basking sharks are feeding below the surface and can't bee seen. Calmer weather and sun should make it rise again bringing the sharks with it. Today we saw grey seals -image, image, image- and seabirds including loads of diving gannets. Here's a picture of us watching basking sharks last week taken by Charles Hood -image-
6th June
 
Hundreds of basking sharks today -image, image, image- a grey seal -image- and seabirds -image-

There was an eerie mist hanging around all day today -image-. The one that got away our friend Chippy from Bite Adventures called us up while he was fishing offshore because he had a whale around his boat.
