We had an all-day survey during which our living seas volunteers were lucky enough to see all of the Cardigan Bay Big Three, which included a spectacular encounter during which a pod of six dolphins approached the boat and socialized. We also saw frequently seen Lipstick and Snowcone, a number of jellyfish, and, unusually, a Canadian Goose and some Shelduck, plus a dolphin eating a Garfish.
