Bow-riding beauties; NEWT’s North Sea Pelagic 13/08/16

by on Aug.16, 2016, under North Sea

Saturday was the first of our 10hr ‘Northumberland Ultimate Pelagic‘ trips this year, and I arrrived at Royal Quays to find eight, out of 12, clients already there and looking forward to the day out in Northumberland’s deep offshore waters.  With everyone on board we set sail out of the Tyne in a fairly stiff breeze and on choppy water.  An Arctic Skua was harrassing Kittiwakes, Fulmars and Gannets soared past on stiff outstretched wings, a flock of Knot flew by and, probably the most unexpected sighting of the day, a Common Swift was heading landwards from around 6 miles offshore.  Puffins and Guillemots were sitting quietly on the sea and, as we headed further out, the breeze died away and we were on calm water when we found the first White-beaked Dolphins of the day.  These 12 animals spent a little time bow-riding before peeling off and heading back to resume feeding.  A few minutes later and a distant dolphin was breaching ahead of us.  As we reached that spot, we suddenly had 10 White-beaked Dolphins bow-riding and at least another ten following close behind and alongside us 🙂

We’ve got a limited number of places still available on our 10hr sailings on Friday September 2nd, Saturday September 10th and Saturday September 24th.  Give us a call on 01670 827465 to book your place before they’re all filled!
