Bluefin Tuna

Sunday 18th July 2021

For the first time this year we had a brief but exciting encounter with a Bluefin Tuna.

The evening trip were sat 30/40 metres off of 'Gull Rock' in one position having a look at the birdlife around the area when one keen eye passenger suddenly went "Woah" and pointed just ahead of us. Everyone's head turned and once more this incredible fish jumped right out of the water momentarily before diving again within 40 metres of the boat! It was enough time to identify it as a Bluefin as they have been seen a few times before in previous years.

Unfortunately it was so quick we weren't able to get a picture of this in particular animal so here is a photo off the internet for reference. Hopefully we will see many more!
