A day for common dolphins

Hello, and welcome to my first blog as ORCA Wildlife Officer. My name is Richard, and as Stephen has mentioned below, I will be updating you regularly on my whale watching adventures with the passengers and crew on the Cap Finistère.

A solitary minke whale, breaching over the wake from the stern of the boat, was a magnificent sight to start off my first round trip from Portsmouth – Santander. This sighting came as we left the English Channel for the Bay of Biscay.

Common dolphins where the order of the day, with over 400 sightings on the outward journey and 200 on our return. It was great to have so many dolphins to show to the numerous children retuning to England at the end of their school holidays.

Richard – Wildlife Officer.
