Porpoise

Once believed to be omens of good weather if seen swimming in a northerly direction with foul seas being associated if they were seen swimming towards the south, these creatures have traditionally seen to be associated with good fortune. Sailors believed also that to see a porpoise at play was a good omen if seen to be at play around the ship, almost as a talisman for the trip ahead. Such play indicated that the journey would have a successful outcome.
