Ah. Now I remember what those Atlantic spotted dolphins look like! We had a great day on the boat; bottlenose followed by more bottlenose and then surprise, while we were watching the bottlenose, spotteds appeared! The two did not appear to be interacting, but the group of three spotteds did allow us to observe them in the water for a few minutes. All three were adults, including female Niecey (#48), an unidentified male and another unidentified animal. I’ll have to see what else I can determine from the video. But, already, I can now say from my own personal knowledge (not just that of local boat operators) that at least some of the summer spotted population is here in the winter too! Another trip tomorrow. As long as the wind forecast is correct. Until then, Kel
