Tina (#14): Tina is one of everyone’s favorite dolphins as she is easy to ID and very playful- with passengers and with other dolphins! First seen in 2002, she is sometimes seen in the company of Leslie (#80) and Nemo (#76). Recognized by the large spot and vertical scars on the left side of her peduncle, she often very curious about our camera but occasionally completely oblivious!
