A windy day with bottlenose

Bimini Tt w smack boat 2009 Today we dealt with 20-25 knot east winds in Bimini, which kept us from exploring “the dolphin grounds.” However, we did brave the seas for some snorkeling on the west side of the island. As the guests paddled about, I kept my eyes peeled – and saw something! A group of approximately 10 bottlenose cruised past! I took some photos and soon the boat was headed in their direction. They were very active/social at the surface, which is not typical of the bottlenose here. We observed them for well over an hour and I filled up the camera’s memory card! Here you can see a bottlenose passing an anchored “smack” boat, a Bahamian commercial fishing vessel.



Until tomorrow,
