A new class 2 animal with an even newer injury. Sunday’s passengers were only here for the day, so everyone was hoping for a great encounter! We found dolphins just past north rock, which is closer to the island than most of our sightings. It was an adult and a calf, and it was the calf’s leaping and splashing that caught our attention. Once we caught up to the pair, we saw that the youngster was one of the dolphins we saw on Tuesday. Recognized by a notch in the peduncle, we saw that today the calf had a new injury to its right side. The wound was fresh, but the calf seemed to be doing fine.
    Later in the trip we came upon a group of adults, who again appeared to be mating. Passengers got one last swim, but we had to go, because the sun was quickly setting.

Until next time,

K, K and D
