Yesterday was my 250th Dolphin Trip!!! 3 of our 5 eco-tour guests were able to head out for a morning dolphin trip. We were sad to see our other 2 go (we missed you two!) but, it was great to be back out with the dolphin grounds. And – there were plenty of them to go around! We were able to observe White Blotch (#29), Lone Star (#56) and un-named #79. Unfortunately, there was also a calf who had suffered a pretty nasty peduncle injury. At first glance, this may be from an unfortunate run-in with a boat prop, but I’ll have to review the video before I’m sure. Fortunately, the calf seemed to be healing well & although it may have been a bit bothered by the injury was keeping up with its mother just fine.

Today, was another dolphin trip, again with plenty of dolphins. Included in the bunch were Finn (#09), Romeo (#10), White Blotch (#29), Nemo (#76), Leslie (#80) and un-named #84 and 87. This was the first time that #84 was seen without her mother, #57. Perhaps this means that #84 is on her own now?!
Now, a quick task for the Bodine Bulldogs & anyone else out there who is playing around. Can you use the link Shop à Adopt A Dolphin to find out some information about the dolphins we saw over the last two days? How old is each dolphin that I named? What are their personalities? Can you see their distinctive markings?
Have a good day!
