Pembrokeshire August / Sept

La Bamba will be berthed in Neyland Marina for a month from this Friday so if you are cruising in West Wales and you fancy a run out in company please get in touch......

Likely to try all the usual haunts from Saundersfoot to Fishguard and out as far as the Smalls .

May even try up the coast a bit further Fishguard to Cardigan , but might trailer to Fishguard for that ? So tides would have be right ......

Regards

Bern

Weather permitting we'll be hovercrafting in the Haven all next week... wave if you're passing then around the power station / Pennar with Razorbill for a few days the following week. Probably be bringing the Arctic (Tystie) round from Cardigan to Fishguard sometime after that.... Drop me a line if you have any Cardigan / Fishguard queries etc

Even a blind pig sometimes finds an acorn................

Day 2 of the cruise turned out to be something special ! We were returning from the Smalls when Paul ( Dhf ) spotted something off the port bow . My first mate Rob said " It looks like dolphins " . Seconds later the first batch of 15 to 20 common dolphins passed us going south . We made a gentle turn to watch them go when the sea seemed full of them . For several minutes they passed us , some going straight by but some coming back to take a closer look at us. I would estimate some some 60 to 100 in all . I have never seen anything like it and Dhf mentioned that only once in his boating experience has he ever seen anything like it either. Truly an experience of a lifetime . One can only wonder what it must be like to see a " superpod " of 1000 to 2000 of the beasts.

Only limited photos I'm afraid , but with a bit of luck Paul may yet post some more...............

Please see pics 2 and 3 ( or indeed browse Paul's Flickr collection ) at

There were also many seals about , but their breeding season has begun so please be cautious with all approaches , and swarms ( are we allowed to say that ? ) of large jellyfish off Tenby / Caldey today .

WOW !! What an awesome experience, really can't thank you enough for the invite Bern, It was a total pleasure to cruise with such good company,
and so great to get the opportunity to photograph the dolphin's, I failed to capture any more than a few Dolphin in any one scene but, Delighted with the one's I did get though, it's one of those moments you need to be there to fully appreciate of course, a moment I shall never forget, I'm still sorting through many of the images I was fortunate to capture, but here's a few for starters.
