Dolphin Diary 160521
We have certainly been blessed with a magical May with both weather and dolfriends treating us very kindly. Granted it’s a bit chilly early mornings - however the water is sitting at around 24.5 degrees at the moment.
After being on land for four days, the team was keen to head off with our eager dolphin seekers. We were greeted with calm seas and great sightings of the local #dolphinsofponta who were observed in Malongane bay.
The large pod of around 30 dolphins were mostly resting - however a small group of young finned friends peeled off and stayed to engage, offering up direct approaches and circle swims in the green and cloudy visibility. Take note of the 'popping' @ 03:09 in the above diary. An interesting sound the males make!
