Dolphin and Whale Watching UK

Most people don't know that it really is possible to go Dolphin and Whale Watching in the seas around the British Isles. When they do learn this fascinating fact they become very interested in taking part in the activity and seeing these beautiful mammals in their natural habitat. Even more amazing is the fact that there are at least 23 species of Dolphin and Whales found in the seas of the British Isles! 
Porpoises are the smallest of this animal group, known as Cetaceans. The Common Porpoise grows to about 6 feet in length and its snout isn't as pronounced as the Dolphin. They are social creatures and swim in small groups. Next is the Dolphin and there are five species found around the British Isles. These are the Bottle-Nosed Dolphin, the Common Dolphin, The Atlantic White-Sided Dolphin, the White-Beaked Dolphin and the Striped Dolphin. Dolphins normally grow to about 10-12 feet in length. The largest of the cetaceans is the Whale and many species are found in the seas around the British Isles. The Fin Whale can grow up to almost 80 feet in length and is the second largest whale in the world. The whale most often seen by those viewing from the land is the Minke Whale. Both these are "Baleen Whales" and they do not have normal teeth but use plates to filter out tiny creatures to eat. The largest toothed whale in the world can be found in British waters and is the Sperm Whale with a length of around 60 feet and weighing up to 57 tonnes!
