Today as we left the harbor I had a feeling it was going to be an amazing day. The sun was shining with clear skies and the slightest breeze. The swell was down and there was no surface chop, absolute beautiful conditions to spot dolphins.
We were searching for dolphins for about half an hour when we got a call from another boat saying that they had seen dolphins. So we headed in that direction and within about fifteen minutes we could see the splashing off in the distance. As we got a bit closer we could see more and more splashing. That’s when we realized we had come across a super pod of dolphins. There were probably 150 or more dolphins splashing about. Once we reached the pod they were swimming all around us, checking us out while we checked them out.
Everyone on board got to go for a swim and check out the dolphins in their environment. I even had a chance to get in and have a swim with them. They were swimming within a meter of us and I spent most of my time yelling and making the most ridiculous noises through my snorkel.
After spending our allotted 90 minutes with the dolphins we left the pod to head back to the harbor when we stumbled across humpback whales! A mum and her calf were having a nice slow swim. We spent some time observing these gentle giants as they carried on their path through the deep blue.Come out and join us on Dolphin Seafari and have an epic story of your own to tell!
