After the morning phone link with the aquarium, it was time for video logging & boat time! The day began with bottlenose just off the beach. After observing this group from the boat for about 10 minutes, we decided to leave them for snorkeling & in search of spotteds. The group snorkeled at Rainbow Reef. After traveling through a bit of rain, we came up on a group of at least 10 spotted dolphins. Included were: Buster (#04), Vincent (#11), Tina (#14), Lil’ Jess (#35), Swoosh (#36) & Billy (#64). We had a good underwater encounter with these animals before heading closer to the island to avoid stormy weather. On the way in, we also saw a group of 6 bottlenose. The new digital camera (for bottlenose dorsal fin photos) has been getting quite a workout! Until next time, Kel & Darcie
