Today was filled….the morning brought a test phone call with the aquarium for this summer’s “Dolphin Highlights” program. For those of you who have been following since 2004, a film showcasing dolphin behavior & DCP’s research is shown in a small theatre at the aquarium. As part of this program, there is a live phone link with us in Bimini! Everything went well with today’s test & the program begins for real next Wednesday! Next, we took the MVA to the beach. Visibility was unusually (and scary) gross- the water was very milky. We don’t know if this is solely based on natural currents & other factors or if it is a continued consequence of the large-scale development at the north of the island which has included grave mangrove destruction & dredging. But, the MVA didn’t leak! Out on the boat it goes. This afternoon was trip #17 of the season. The seas were exceptionally rough, so we did not stray very far from shore. The trip began with a snorkel stop & ended with a snorkel stop in an attempt to keep guests engaged, safe, and not seasick. Hopefully the seas will die down soon because we have another 9 trips in the next 7 days. Until next time, Kel & Darcie
