Dolphin superpod spotted in Welsh waters. 

A superpod of over 1,000 dolphins was spotted off the coast of Pembrokeshire by the marine wildlife conservation charity Sea Trust during a routine survey at the weekend.

A spokesperson from the conservation group who witnessed a 'mile long wall of dolphins' said it was the "most spectacular" sighting in 10 years of surveying the Welsh waters. "On three occasions we have encountered superpods of common dolphin in Pembrokeshire waters but this was the most spectacular with wall-to-wall dolphins."

The dolphins were seen on a 30-mile stretch between Milford Haven and Lundy.

Our film crew on location in Cardigan Bay during the shoot for our latest TV advert last year were also lucky enough to witness a smaller pod of dolphins, whilst on a rib ride with A Bay to Remember. You can see the dolphins at 0:22 in the video below.

Cardigan Bay is a fantastic area to spot dolphins, with the UK’s biggest pod of dolphins calling it home.
