Dolphin Diary 210521

Going for the gap! After a couple of days of pounding onshore, we finally managed to make it off to sea before the southerly winds arrived and located a pod of the local #dolphinsofponta right at the top of our northern range.


Just as we were about to turn around and head back to Ponta - Mr Dolphin Eyes Dallas spotted a large pod of some 30 individuals close in backline heading north in Madajanine Bay.

On approach the pod turned towards us and started approaching the boat to bowride - something they seem to be enjoying a lot of late!


Once kitted up and slipped in - we were greeted by a mostly resting pod - with mums and babes tucked between the pod who moved through us. It’s interesting to note that although the majority of the pod did not want to engage, once again a small group peeled off and stayed to visit before joining up with the rest of the pod heading north towards Mamoli.
