WATCH INCREDIBLE FOOTAGE OF DOLPHINS AS THEY CHASE BANANA BOAT OFF GAOTH DOBHAIR

first_imgA DOZEN delightful dolphins have been drawing crowds to the islands off Gaoth Dobhair. Sabha Curran, who operates a ferry service between the mainland and the islands of Gola and Inis Meain, has been busy this summer with people looking to book fishing trips.But he says no-one expected to see anything quite this big bouncing through the waters off Magheragallan.Gola Island is a haven for artists, birdwatchers, photographers, walkers and rock climbers.Near the island’s lake, bird life abounds; cormorants, razorbills, guillemots as well as gannets and kittiwakes can be admired. Now dolphins are the latest attraction.Said Sabha: “Fishing trips with me have been very popular this year. The weather doesn’t really matter too much when you are out.“But these dolphins are proving a big attraction. People are coming from all over the country to see them and we’ve had Belgians, Germans, Americans and French tourists out too.“For people just wanting to go across to Gola or Inis Meain it has been an added bonus too. The dolphins appear to enjoy the sound of the engine and have been coming up right beside the ferry on crossings.“It has been absolutely fantastic over the past few days.”Some of the Donegal U14 girls footballers were on Inis Meain last week as guest of the O Ghallchóir family.And when they took to the banana boat and kayaks run by Selkie Sailing, some of the dolphins came right up beside them. Watch a video of the event – and look closely either side of the banana – as the dolphins jump in and out of the water.Gola Ferry & Fishing Trips (and now dolphin watching) are on 087 2245881)WATCH INCREDIBLE FOOTAGE OF DOLPHINS AS THEY CHASE BANANA BOAT OFF GAOTH DOBHAIR was last modified: July 26th, 2015 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:bottlenoseDisplaydolphinsdonegalGaoth DobhairGolaislandwaterlast_img
