On-board ‘Anna Lloyd’ for yesterday’s all-day boat trip, we had some incredible sightings recorded by our Living Seas team. The Cardigan Bay big three were all seen (dolphins, seals and porpoise) along with our first confirmed sighting of a basking shark here in three years. Although only a small individual of around 7ft, it was still a remarkable rare sight for all on the trip.
