The New Quay Bay waters were very active yesterday with groups of dolphins spotted by Living Seas volunteers throughout the entire day. Almost all of the groups were seen foraging whilst socializing amongst themselves by joining each other’s groups, leaping over one another and tail slapping. The groups stayed mainly just in front of the headland, none ventured out to the cardinal buoy.
