Pulling some Stunts, are we ?

On this beautiful Sunday Morning guests joined with enthusiasm.

We were so happy  to have sighted a big pod of Common Dolphins (Delphinus delphis), the pod was comprised of around 60 individuals.

Not only was the ocean literally smelling like fish but the dolphins engaged in a coordinated swim that truly portrayed the speed these animals can attain.

We continued our trip and spotted a big group of Bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus), and in the pod was an individual that was most likely born with an anomaly on the mouth. This individual has been sighted a few times during the years meaning he is able to feed properly  but check out the amazing picture taken by our Skipper, Tiago.

Bottlenose dolphin with a morphological anomaly we speculate that he was actually born this way. 

 

The pod was quite active engaging in twists and jumps and definitely we were speechless watching these majestic creatures, hence our title for today’s blog.

A happy Sunday to all.
