This morning was busy, catching up on neglected email before heading out in search of dolphins. The winds were finally calm; it felt like summer! The sea was picture perfect flat as I looked overboard counting the sea stars on the seafloor. Then, at approximately 1530, I saw them. At 11 o’clock dorsal fins broke the surface. As we headed toward them, we were greeted by Split Jaw (#22), a young juvenile and, I think, Tim (#69). As they rode the bow, we were soon surrounded by bottlenose dolphins. The two species did not appear to interact, but I was able to record a few minutes of bottlenose video. Later in the day, we observed a large group of spotted adults (and sub-adult Lil’ Jess – #35!) both from the boat and underwater. I have a lot of ID work ahead me! But first, another dolphin trip tomorrow!
