Bottlenose Dolphins Having Fun

A month ago we took the first morning boat tour out of Everglades National Park.

We were told we had a good chance on seeing Bottlenose dolphins feeding in a specific area, and sure enough the dolphins were there.Β  Seeing them breach the water so close to the boat got very exciting.

The boat captain told us to hold on, we were going to see if the dolphins wanted to play.


Come along on a boat ride and watch Bottlenose dolphins having a blast jumping through our boat’s wake!

    • Thank you, Susan! It was a delight to see! We’ve only had one or two do something similar in the lower Chesapeake Bay when we’ve been out boating, but not like this! πŸ™‚

    • Thank you, William! It is hard, trying to anticipate when they’ll breach again. Believe me, I trashed quite a few ‘no shows’ lol. Our Lord truly made a beautiful, happy creature with the dolphins. πŸ™‚

  1. What adorable, happy babies. When Ken was in the fleet Navy, he talked about being out to sea and having them come up to ride ship’s wake. He said they are fun to watch.

    There was a dolphin petting pool at Sea World there in FL way back in 1977 when I went with my mom to Disney World. They are so dang cute.

    • They have the biggest smiles, you can’t help but feel like a kid around them! It was pretty cool, I never got to experience that many and so close to the boat playing. πŸ™‚
