After 50 minutes of the survey two dolphins were seen approximately 150 m beyond the fish factory travelling easterly towards the Cardinal Buoy. About 15 minutes later a group of 5 dolphins including one juvenile were seen off the Fish Factory. The group split with two travelling towards the Cardinal Buoy whilst three, including the juvenile headed towards the harbour. This latter trio were last seen just off the harbour wall. It was nearly another 30 minutes before two dolphins were again seen, once more beyond the Fish Factory. These were joined by four more dolphins including two juveniles. The group remained foraging at depth and were still present in the same area at the end of the survey.
