July update - rare beaked whales and more

During the last few weeks here it has been perfect for whale and dolphin watching. This means that our crew has been busy running many different tours every day, with not much of a chance to give updates from our amazing tours. All of our tours have been successful and have have resulted in many happy passengers. This month we have had some great encounters with large groups of sperm whales, pilot whales, bottlenose dolphins, common dolphins, Risso's dolphins, Atlantic spotted dolphins, and striped dolphins. This morning we even had a rare encounter with some beaked whales. Our swimming tours have also been in full swing. Since the Atlantic spotted dolphins have arrived in our waters we have had some great swimming tours with them, as well as our resident bottlenose dolphins and common dolphins. We invite you to come and test our waters for yourself!!
