Orca Surfacing Description:

The first comprehensive guide to the whales, dolphins and porpoises of Great Britain with stunning colour photography. Section one introduces the 17 most commonly sighted species of cetaceans, giving details on identification, behaviour, distribution and recommended hotspots to see them. Each species account is accompanied by a photographic plate depicting animals as they are seen at the surface. The bulk of the book describes where to see cetaceans around Great Britain from land, from whale and dolphin watching boats, and from ferries. The text gives every detail a reader would need to book a trip, from which species are likely to be seen, to how to get there and what photographic opportunities are available plus our tips and tricks section on how to take good whale and dolphin photographs. The result is a must-have guide for anybody with an interest in cetaceans and whale and dolphin watching. This book will also appeal to people who had no idea that they could go whale watching from our shores, by bringing together a wealth of information on the many and varied options available in one concise guide.
