Latest Sightings

25th November 2015- We had a lovely trip this morning, with lots of bottlenose dolphins at St Croix, as well as the penguins! Some guests from France, Australia, New Zealand, USA and always exciting to see.. a local from PE! We finally had a nice weather day (though the wind did start to pick up a little on the way back) but unfortunately still no whales. Though this is certainly not the end of the season, and we are still expecting hundreds to be passing the bay until the end of the year!
