An incredibly friendly group of bottlenose dolphins this morning!

The pod stayed with us for about 35 minutes, travelling west, playing alongside the boat and bow-riding up the front with their calves.. the adults teaching the juveniles how to surf?! Amazing to watch. Bottlenose dolphins are seen regularly on our trips (over half of the days so far this month) and we've come to know some of the individuals quite well. One of our biologists photographs as many dorsal fins as possible for analysis when we're back on shore to identify the "residents", or animals we see multiple times, so we can learn more about individuals and the species as a whole.
