On any session you could see Dolphin, Seals, Peregrin falcons, Barrel Jelly Fish, Cormorants, many types of Herring Gul, Fulmars as well as all your rock pool creatures, crabs, shoals of mackerel and bass, white bait - the list goes on and on!
Seals are like dogs- playful, friendly and full of character. Our groups get surprised almost every day when a large head suddenly pops up or they shoot out of caves unexpectedly.
When I was a child seals were rare, but now you might see five or more at the same time basking on the warm seaweed. Please don't disturb them- we have a zero disturbance policy which supports natural behaviour.
Come at the right time of year and you could be right in the middle of a feeding frenzy. Massive shoals of fish devouring massive shoals of smaller fish... fun fun fun.
The Conger Eel is one of the largest eels in the world, and the largest found in English waters, growing to around 2 meters in length.
During the day, they hide in holes and crevices along rocky coastlines, and are often found in ship wrecks. This one was caught by a seal !
Jellyfish have specialised stinging cells, called nematocysts. These cells are special pressurised pods, containing a tiny, harpoon like sting. Very few of our resident jellyfish are dangerous but peoples reaction to seeing them if often hilarious.
