Saw bottlenose right off the bat but did not attempt entry. Then interacted with some calves and cranky juvies. After a few brief sightings and some frustration among the passengers, we finally encountered dolphins around 7:30. It was a mixed group, fairly large, with some rambunctious calves messing around. From the boat, we observed a lot of tail slapping and leaps. From underwater, we observed one juvenile repeatedly fluke slapping another juvenile, with a nonplayful implication. In fact, one of the group leaders was accidentally whacked by a rogue tail in the melee.

We wandered into deeper water with the dolphins and the group became interspecied and included over 15 animals. We were in and out of the water with them for about a half hour before we left them as the sun went down.

No trips for a few days so its back to the old data processing. Until then...
