Bass Rock - Part 3

After spending a good 3 hours on the Bass Rock it is time to get back on the boat and head back to Dunbar Harbour. Just when you think to yourself it can't get better than this, oh boy it does. On the outward journey home 30 minutes is spent "Chumming" which is a process of throwing bait over the side of the boat to entice the Gannets into their spectacular plunge dive.

So its make sure you have your life jackets tightly fastened, get battling for position, finger on the shutter ready, then fire away.  This truly is an amazing sight, Gannets torpedoing everywhere, believe me you have to be fast with your camera to lock on to a diving Gannet.
