Marine Discovery Penzance shared photos and a video on Facebook, saying the creatures were taking a break between feeds.

"It was like spring out there this morning, with calm sea and bright sunshine. 

"As we headed south we found stacks of guillemots both on the water and whirring past the boat at top speed, and also a fair few gannets. 

"These led us to a couple of small pods of inquisitive common dolphins who were taking a break between feeding bouts".
