Dolphins, sharks and whales all spotted in Falmouth Bay

From 24 July 2012

Cornwall's best boat trip, Orca Sea Safaris, saw Common Dolphins, Basking Sharks and a Fin Whale off the coast of Falmouth yesterday.

The sun is out, the skies are blue and the water around Falmouth is teeming with an incredible array of marine life.

Yesterday, Orca Sea Safaris, one of Cornwall's top boat trips, who offer wildlife watching and coastal safaris in some of the UK’s most stunning waters, were treated to a spectacular show.

Out in the bay, the morning boat trip found a pod of 30-40 common dolphins, all feeding frantically. With the weather so good and the seas so calm, conditions expected to last the week, it was ideal for spotting wildife.

The afternoon boat trip found two Basking Sharks making their way majestically through the calm seas which were swiftly followed by a sighting of a couple of Pilot Whales.

But the star of the show, and the icing on the cake after an incredible day for seeing wildlife, was the sighting of Fin Whale - the second longest animal in the world.

Orca Sea Safaris run three boat trips a day and are one of the best days out in Cornwall. They are based on Event Square in Falmouth and run trips on their purpose built RIB - Seaquest.
