On the rough side

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
