"Dolphins.....!!!!!!!" Glenelg Favorite Tip by nickandchris

Favorite thing: I had read that sightings of dolphins, porpoises and minke whale were quite common in the Sound of Sleat. Every day I watched the sea for any disturbance. The first couple of days, not even a seal was spotted but plenty of seabirds pretending to be them.
One early evening, as we were waiting for the tide to come in sufficiently to get the boat out, there was a sudden commotion in the bay. I expected porpoises but these were huge and definitely not black. There were many of them, frolicking and playing, leaping out of the water and standing on their heads. I was thrilled, particularly once we had the boat in the water and they suddenly leapt up all around us. So close I thought we might capsize!!!! These were undoubtedly dolphins, their inquisitiveness and following of the boat making it a dead cert.
These beautiful creaures stayed in the bay for at least a couple of hours and when we arose the next morning they were still out there, closer to Skye this time.
Fondest memory: Watching those dolphins!!!!!
No pics, sorry, only video recording.
