To the best of my knowledge, although I would happily be corrected, I think the best chance you have of seeing dolphins is to go out from from Fishguard up to Cardigan bay, you're pretty much guaranteed then as there is a resident pod. They tend to stay a little further off shore here although its only a little further south, more towards Grassholm than Skomer and Skokholm although they will follow the mackerel in dependant on the feeding conditions.

Was out again on Thursday with a couple of friends from away who very rarely get the opportunity to get out on a boat. Took them for a picnic round to Skomer and as they both have cameras which are vastly better than my phone I thought I'd post some of their pics. One of the lads wanted a few shots of Nenya in action too which was great as I'd never actually seen her on the move before.

My rib. The last one was taken with a cheapy digital, he didn't fancy hanging his very expensive camera over the edge which I thought was very selfish of him.

Think I'll probably go out for a blast tomorrow after lunch sometime.

Now I know what your boat looks like, I shall keep an eye out for you in the future

Would have been out on Thursday as well, but unfortunately, my credit card got skimmed the week before last and I don't have anything to buy "go-juice" with right now.... I'm hoping to see an envelope with a bit of plastic in it come through the letterbox today....

-Alex

I may see you out there then Alex, I'm hoping to get a trip in tomorrow afternoon too.
I could do with someone doing something to my card at the moment, I swear that anybody dodgy would be spending less so as not to appear suspicious. Damn this beautiful weather and the price of fuel, the kids will just have to have bread and water again!
