Video surfaces of common dolphins seen near Fowey Harbour

A new video has surfaced online showing a pod of dolphins swimming underwater off the south coast of Cornwall, close to our hotel near Fowey. A fishing group left Fowey Harbour early on Monday, where they saw porpoise following their boat as well.



Posted online by Fishquest Cornwall, the video shows the common dolphins following their boat for some time and gave the group the great chance to film them underwater as they travelled.

Throughout the day, the boat was fishing in various spots around Fowey and they were visited by lots of different groups of dolphins. The group said "There wasn't a lot of time spent that we couldn't see dolphins in some direction, and it wasn't as if we were looking for them."

Skipper of the boat Tal Bryant and his friend Joe Todd said they were fortunate to come across such inquisitive dolphins that let them get such amazing footage, calling it a "once in a lifetime experience."

Fishquest Cornwall also said they have been lucky to see Bluefin tuna and a Minke whale up close in the last year, and if their luck continues, might even bump into a humpback whale.

The waters around Fowey are great for seeing porpoise and dolphins, so when staying at our hotel near Fowey, why not organise a boat trip out of Fowey Harbour and try to spot these magnificent mammals yourself?
