Dolphins and a manta ray




Common dolphins, bottlenose dolphins, a manta ray and a loggerhead turtle filled our day today. We started with a large but spread out group of common dolphins being just as playful and joyful as dolphins can be. The bottlenose dolphins didn't want to spend time with us and we had a very short encounter. They are wild and it is up to them if they want to be with us or not, and today we had "not" from the bottlenose dolphins. Instead we spotted both a loggerhead turtle and a manta ray. We also made a stop to pick up a rope from the ocean, so no wildlife (or boats) will get hurt by it. Photos from today:
