Other Marine Life

While out at sea looking for birds, whales and dolphins other marine creatures may also be encountered including sharks, fish and turtles. The most commonly encountered are Blue Shark, Loggerhead Turtle, Flying Fish, Ocean Sunfish and Portuguese Man of war.

On our trips we have also more rarely encountered Basking Sharks, Hammerhead Sharks, Oceanic White-tipped Shark and Blue Marlin.
