Seabird & Whale Trip Report 17th & 18th Sept

  • Mon 27th Sep, 2021

The 17th Sept was our biggest Minke Whale day of the year so far. Both trips were led by YCN guide Jono Leadley. The whale season has been late this year alongside the herring spawning and mackrel, so we were really pleased when we finally found increasing numbers of whales later in September.

Seabird & Whale Trip Report 4th & 10th Sept

  • Sun 19th Sep, 2021

Plenty of Gannets circling and diving, and then, right on cue as we arrived, a feeding Minke surfacing..... we spent the next half hour or more with it, and shortly afterwards another joined in the fun, and we had breathtaking, close-up views on a perfectly silent, tropical sea.
