Living seas volunteers conducted surveys from 9am – 7pm and spotted bottlenose dolphins in four out of the five surveys. The bottlenose dolphins were seen around the bay from the headland to the cardinal buoy and further towards the reef. Dolphin behaviour varied from foraging to tail slapping and jumping.

Two Atlantic grey seals were also spotted, one near the harbour wall and one close to the headland.
