100's of Dolphins off Lands End

Had a great experience with Longjohn and Adamn about 10 miles off Lands End on the way back from the Isles of Scilly on Sat. Maximus saw them too.

Fantastic sighting and well captured! its a great experience to be caught up in a super pod, and this vid is a great demonstation on what actions to take when surrounded by them.

Another take on this fabulous sighting I shared with Whisper & Adamn. Just couldn't believe how many dolphins there were - apart from the obvious dolphins all the white crests you see in the distance were dolphins as well!
