At 1710, we saw big slashes close to deep water & we headed over. The sea was so flat, it looked like there were dolphins everywhere. It was a scattered group of Atlantic spotted dolphins comprised mainly of juveniles & young sub-adults. Are you ready for the list of who we saw? Here goes:
Finn (#09), Romeo (#10), Lil’ Jess (#35), Billy (#64), Nemo (#76), Leslie (#80), and un-named #78, 79, 84 and 87! I was able to record nearly 40 minutes of underwater video, including a sequence of serious Leslie & Romeo eyeball as the two competed for the camera’s attention. Overall, the dolphins were very calm; lots of slow swimming and hanging at the surface. It was all very cool to see and I look forward to reviewing the video.
Another boat trip leaves in an hour & the weather is looking just as good! Check back later for another update!
