Beach House Port Isaac Cornwall Large luxury self catering holiday cottage with breathtaking sea views

2017 Record Year for Whale and Dolphin Sightings

Monday, Mar 12, 2018


The stunning Cornish coast seems to be as attractive to whales and dolphins as it is to humans.

According to the Cornish Guardian, hundreds of cetaceans – whales, harbour porpoises and dolphins – were spotted at various locations around Cornwall during 2017.

A group of 150 short-beaked common dolphins was seen in one location, with 20 harbour porpoises sighted in Mount Bay and 11 minke whales spotted off Penzance.

One wildlife cruise boat noted over 5000 sightings of seven different cetacean species during the course of 2017.

Bottlenose dolphins were also one of the most frequent visitors to the Cornish waters.
