It was an exceptionally long drive to the dolphins. Our guests had to be patient. But in the far west a large school of the Atlantic spotted dolphins (Stenella frontalis) was waiting for us. It’s just always nice to experience this liveliness of this little species of dolphin. To experience their curiosity and their skill in the bow wave of the boat is something very special. They glide effortlessly through the magical blue of the Atlantic with almost no movement of the tail. Wonderful!
Our smallest guest brought a friend who went with us as a blind passenger.
On the way back the wind direction changed and it got wavy. But I hope the wonderful experience with the animals will be remembered.
