According to Sea Trust volunteers, Strumble Head attracts very large numbers of porpoises, including mothers with calves all year round. Apart from porpoises, several other cetacean species have been recorded. Rissos are seen several times a year particularly around the Christmas period, while other occasional visitors include basking sharks and sunfish. Fin, humpback , minke whale and orca have also all been recorded. Bottlenose dolphins can be see further to the north but are not often spotted at Strumble Head.
We have seen these marine mammals when staying in Dinas and we are reminded by wildlife organisations to be alert to strandings.
