Weather conditions: Dry, Wind direction: SW, Sea State 2-3, moderate – high swell, visibility: >10km

During yesterday’s survey aboard Anna Lloyd our Living Seas Volunteer saw two groups of dolphins. The first sighting of a mother and calf was at the commencement of the trip close to New Quay. Later on the return trip a group of three individuals was encountered. These gave passengers a good encounter with the dolphins socialising in close contact and at times leaping. There was also a sighting of a female bottling just off the rocks.
