This morning was the final trip for last week’s group & unfortunately it was rough & dolphin-less. We headed away from the dock, knowing that it might be a rough, rainy ride- and it was. We tried for just over 2 hours to find dolphins, but the seas & rain were too much. So, it was back to the dock & farewell to our passengers. We hope they had a great time, despite some of the weather challenges thrown in! The afternoon was much more what we normally expect. We did not see dolphins by 18:00, so it was time for a swim break- and apparently a dolphin swim-by! Two older spotted cruised past, but showed no interest in us or the boat. We can’t know what they were up to, but they were certainly on a mission. We patiently continued on in search of others & we found them! Today’s group included Leslie (#80), Nemo (#76), Tina (#14) and unnamed #57 & her calf #84. It certainly made up for our rain-out yesterday. Until tomorrow, Kel & Darcie
