Dolphin Safari

" Humpback dolphins, bottlenose dolphins and spinner dolphins are present all year around. Far from the seashore, they can be found in groups of a dozen or in smaller groups closer to the shore. They are usually shy but love playing. "

Spinner dolphins are small dolphins living in largegroupe wich can be found at distance of the shore. Very often they jump out of water and twist in the air beautifully. They can be found occassionnaly when diving. They dare come close to boats et play around the stem. The bottlenose dolphin (tursiops) is present everywhere, living in small groups, either close to the shore or at distance. It is quite curious, and one of the rare dolphins whose swimming with him can take up to dozens of minutes.

Humpback dolphins live in small groups near the shore, they are less curious and shyer, although loving to play when young.

We encounter also less often : pilote whale, peponocéphales, false killer whale, spotted dolphins...
