September with the warmth of August

Well we are finally into September, but things are still warm and interesting!

We have had an amazing season of sightings – jellyfish, basking sharks, and 100′s of common dolphins. The large numbers usually slow down in September, but there is still plenty to see – and with the temperatures still good and the warm Gulf Stream coming up from Florida – we are looking forward to spotting a wide variety of sea life and birds.

We will be running our usual trips over the Autumn, or alternatively give Rory a call on 07971 540 280 and discuss what you’re looking for – and he’ll see what’s possible. Elemental Tours are still working closely with their partners at the Shark Trust and Cornwall Wildlife Trust to monitor sightings, behaviours and take part in rescues.

If you want to learn more about whales, dolphins, seals, sharks and ocean sunfish – why not join the Wildlife Trust for their Seaquest public sea watch at Hella Point near Porthgwarra on the 4th September. Don’t forget to take binoculars – both the wildlife and the view are amazing!

Hello world!

What a beautiful day…again!

Wishing you all a Happy Easter weekend!

In our drive for sustainability, needs must,  we’ve decided not to run sea trips this Easter. Who could have predicted the weather, eh? Land and Education are our better ‘crop rotation’ options at this time of year 2012, so we are out there, but veiwing the sea from our coastal perspective, watching with interest from the cliffs. Hope you are too.

On that note, our old friend and crew mate, Tim Bain, spotted the first Basking Shark in Cornwall this year on the 19th March, off Porthmeor Beach, St Ives.

Unlike their unusually low numbers last year, let’s hope things will be back to nornal this year. Basking shark city here we come.. we say…waiting with anticipation!!

Sea Trips start this year in May so keep in touch to book your Atlanic Adventure R.I.B. trip this spring and summer

On the Land side of things, all this warm spring weather is bringing out the wildlife. Yesterday, on an Overland, we found slow worms, spotted a beautiful female adder and lizards basking in hedges, and watched choughs circling aerobatically around Botallack. Fantastic.

For  an Easter treat, why not grab some creative Cornish heritage, and take in what Miracle Theatre are offering at Botallack this holiday. See
