Happy times with wet shoes!

Hi out there! 🙂

I hope by now you all changed your wet clothes – it was a tour with quite some splash and waves! But what a beautiful encounter with the Atlantic spotted dolphins today!

The first group we saw was a family of maybe 30 individuals. The group was a bit scattered at first, but came together at a certain time, so that we could see them jumping simultainiously. Hach 🙂 We could see how the juveniles mostly stayed close by their mother, but some cheeky ones went ahead and tried some jumps themselves. Especially one had a bit of trouble – its tail unwillingly slapped the surface quite a lot.

After a good time spend we followed our second boat to see what they were seeing. On our way we got a real wave into the boat – I am really glad you even liked it and found that fun! Cool group! 🙂 When we arrived the location we saw another group of Atlantic spotted dolphins. And here was a baby of only a few days old! <3 So cool to see!

Today, there was nothing else out there at that time, so we decided to show you all the coastline – I hope you liked to see the island from another angle!And also the dolphins of course!
