Regulars will have already seen some of the albatross we encountered.
But this post is about the Bottlenose dolphins we encountered as well. I've been fortunate enough to see dolphins and porpoises in a number of places around the world. When I lived in Ireland I used to see them almost every day. But on this trip I think I saw more dolphins in one day than I even have before. At one time there was a pod of these mammals spread over an area of over 500 m and everywhere you looked the water was breaking with fins. I have no idea how many individuals were in the pod - but its safe to say there were lots!
Here are some of the (many) pictures I took during the trip:
I have one image (which is not great in some ways) where you can see at least 9 dolphins in from of the boat. It was one of those "David Attenborough" kind of moments.
You can find more shots from around the world at Our World Tuesday.
Enjoy the pictures.
