A beautiful day in the – dolphin – neighborhood

Wednesday was another great day in Bimini. We headed out confident (as always) that we would see our spotted (or bottlenose) friends. We got a quick glimpse of what appeared to be a lone bottlenose dolphin, but it appeared to be actively avoiding the boat – so we headed on our way. With the sun setting earlier these days, we were beginning to worry about not seeing more dolphins as the sun dipped lower and lower in the sky. But then, seemingly out of nowhere, we saw them! At least eight spotted dolphins, including Split Jaw (#22), Billy (#64), Speedy (#78), Tilly (#87) and un-named #91. We had a great 20 minute swim with these guys and everyone was glowing back on the boat. As we headed home, we came across 3 separate groups of spotted dolphins! They were eager to bow ride and we got one more, quick, sunset swim with White Blotch (#29) and un-named #94. We also saw Tina (#14) and un-named #92. Another great day! 

Until tomorrow,
