Fifteen minutes into the survey two dolphins were present off the fish factory and travelling west making long dives thought to be looking for food. Two other dolphins entered the survey area, one sticking with the group of two and the other coming close to the harbour wall and doing leaps and tailslaps. By 16:15 the dolphins had left the survey area.
