The Wildlife We See

One of the very best things about sailing on the West Coast of the UK, is the wildlife we see. The waters literally teem with life. There are times when the water seems alive with fish, and great flocks of birds feed from above while dolphin, porpoise and even the odd whale can be seen feeding from below.

Your Skipper many years ago completed his original degree in marine biology and whilst not an expert in all things is able to give you a sound introduction to the marine biology and the diversity of species in our Celtic area.

Click on the thumbnails to the right to enlarge them. These are all photos taken from Celtic Star (or her dinghy with on eor two of the basking shark shots), and are of creatures you may see.

Can I just say thanks to all those who have contribute photos to us which we use in our web site and our newsletters.
