Dolphin Encounter

Wild Bottlenose Dolphins have become habituated to humans in their environment. A dolphin swim right up to snorkelers with intense interest and even looks of curiosity and a faint smile at how un-coordinated and helpless humans are in water. As they rise to the surface they blow bubbles as signatures or splash around on the surface as a form of communication.

Inshore Bottlenose Dolphins – Tursiops truncates

Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphins are small cetaceans that have along, beaklike snout, a Falcate (sickle-shaped) dorsal fin and sharp teeth. They are Odontoceti (toothed whales) and have one blowhole. They live in small groups called pods and grow to be at most 3.7m long, sometimes weighing more than 635kg. Dolphins can dive down to more 300m and can jump up to 6m out of the water.
