Ok, so today made up for the rest of the rough week! The seas were still rougher than we like, but calming it a bit. We found dolphins at 17:51 including White Blotch (#29) & her calf. We tried to swim, but they did not stick around. They didn’t go far though, so we observed them from the boat. An hour & a half later, the dolphin group grew from 3 to 6 & they were ready to swim with clumsy people! In the group was Nemo (#76), Tina (#14), Split Jaw (#22), Leslie (#80) & Lil’ Jess (#35). We were exhausted after the 45 minute swim! It was more free diving than I’ve done in a long time! Next trip should be Sunday when a new dolphin week begins! Until next time, Kel
