We saw them off the West Coast whilst sat on Alleynes Bay last year MDP in March, it just happened to be my birthday and was magical to see. They have been spotted again this year March and April swimming up and down the South and West Coast and there are often quite a few spotted from the animal flower cave, they update their facebook page with sightings.

mdp------------as uktripfan says, the whales usually arrive late March and seem to stay for a month or so before moving on. There were , apparently ,8 of them by the Animal Flower Cave, but I've only ever seen 2.

Hi All and thanks for all of the heated suggestions etc.. on this and the other forum.

Back now from Discovery Bay, had a ball, loved the place, BESTEST EVER CAT Sunset cruise is Calabaza yes CALABAZA - 3.5 hrs & think £60 circa for all your drinks and lovely canapes and nibbles, lovely boat, 12 persons only, 3 crew. Just lovely & felt like part of the family. We just loved it and it was the best one we have ever been on etc... same stuff done, ie snorkel with turtles and ship wreck etc... professional, turtles when no other boats around as late afternoon, just lovely. Going to paste this on to TA for them as well 5 out of 5 - thanks guys tho for all your ideas x
