Its worth slowing down round the red can at Ardlamont point and letting the resident dolphin come over to play.He or she can put on a bit of a show if in the mood!! Never strays more than 20-30 metres from the red marker so you have to be close.

We were lucky enough to get the 5pm dolphin show.

This one definitely isn't shy and was happy to swim a foot away from the boat so be careful!

i have never seen so much crap in the river after any type of bad weather like this.

cheers

on a positive note, i can confirm the dolphin is still in fine fettle. played with the boat for a good hour.

Thought we were the only ones. We were with the dolphin around 11.15. Nobody in sight and no one made themselves. known at Portavadie. Just having a wonderful breakfast then off exploring in the rain.
