Additional Information:

If people are interested, we are trying to put together a Seal cruise on Sunday 29 April 2018 at 12 noon.  This would be a boat tour of our local waters to see if any of the local seal species are still hanging around our area.  They are usually in our local waters from around October to May, and then they move North out of our area.  The tour would last approximately 2 hours and the fee would depend on the number of people signed up.
