THE WATERS OFF the Donegal coast are fast becoming a viewing ground for marine life from porpoises to killer whales.

Over the weekend, Paul McMenamin got a special escort from a pod of inquisitive dolphins – which decided to cruise alongside his friend’s boat for a closer look.

The local photographer said there were up to 50 dolphins in the pod and he managed to get a drone in the air in time to capture the “amazing experience” near Malin Head.

Watch McMenamin’s stunning drone footage from the up-close encounter:
