Dolphins off the Island of Raasay

Although every sea kayaking trip is special in its own right, every once in a while something happens that makes that particular trip just that extra bit special.
Checking us out.

The show begins.
A Close encounter.
Children from the Raasay Outdoor Centre receive a visit that they will remember for a life time.

This was only part of a trip to Skye, Scalpay and Raasay. I will post a full trip report in parts with the complete set of dolphin pictures.

See you soon.

  1. To catch a great action shot of a dolphin jumping completely out of the water right in front of you is about impossible and you managed to do it. Excellent photo David!

  2. Amazing photos, David as I mentioned over on my blog. Looking forward to more!

  3. Simply awesome, David! I'm going to let the folks back in Canada know about these pics! Duncan.

  4. Fantastic, fantastic, fantastic! What an experience, and great timing on the photos too

    Kind Regards

  5. Hi everyone, thanks for the kind words. I think it was all done to luck: being in the right place at the right time. It would have been heartbreaking if some of the pictures did not come out, the way I was hoping for. However, they were very obliging, and I got the feeling they liked the limelight. There is a full sequence of pictures of this wonderful experience in the post: Skye, Scalpay and Raasay, Part 3.

    Bye for now.
