02.06.2016 – Resting/active
This afternoon on Ribeira Brava our guests had very different experience. Our inshore Bottlenose dolphins were in a resting mode and behaved restrained. Some animals slapped their tales continuously on the water surface and we decided to leave this group. Our contact with the Atlantic Spotted dolphins went totally different. While we moved in the same direction we could observe the following behaviours: riding in the bow; leaps; socializing and mating.
