Once we left the bottlenose, it wasn’t long before we saw some splashes to the east and then came across a group of younger spotted dolphins. The young dolphin from last week (with the fresh injury, #77) was in the group with its mom, who we identified as DCP ID #48. We also saw “Shark Bite,” a young dolphin who the Bimini Undersea staff had seen earlier this summer, but we had yet to see. Overall, we spent 45 minutes in the water with this group of spotteds and look forward to going over the footage for more IDs and behavior notes. Another trip tomorrow!
