Dolphins today

These stunning creatures were spotted by our crew just past Old Harry Rocks on our return to Poole. Spotted a fin and brought the boat to a slow speed and suddenly they came over to us

We came across some white beaked dolphins on Sunday just off Newton Point.

They stayed with us for around 30 minutes at about 8 knts. Amazing.
