I'm easily bought, two tea bags and a squirt of HP sauce.

We had big confused mayhem off of Lizard Point on the way out and glassy conditions on theway back, two extremes.

Ian and Gary (1st timers out of Falmouth in a 6m Humber dive rig) had a ball and really have caught the ribbing bug.

Pics may follow.

Fantastic weekend and great to meet everyone

Much, much better than Alderney!

So much to do and worth the effort, the sea's were a pleasure

Saw a massive sun fish catching some rays and got about 30 mins of footage of the 100's of dolphins on the way back.

Also bumped into the scorpions mid crossing and they were taking photos of us?!

In Southampton now so going to crash here tonight then home tomorrow

Absolutely awesome! I want to go back!

Alex

BRILLIANT!!!!!!
I have to echo the comments above. Great experience in seas that were interesting at times (I learned a lot)
Took this photo this morning at 6am. The skies and the increasing wind tell me we made the right decision to come back early.
The other photos are of some of the many Hundreds of Dolphins we saw on the way back.

That's a shame just hope what Ian has lost, wasn't to expensive.

"Shame"? It was bloody hilarious! He even lost his mate who jumped ship. I couldn't drive for laughing. They were the Cornish Chuckle Brothers.
