Saint Helena: Pantropical Spotted Dolphins

St Helena is home to thousands of dolphins offering those in a boat tour to witness huge masses of them displaying their social behaviors with jumping and following the boat all around you. The species is the Pantropical Spotted Dolphin, one of the common dolphins in the warm waters of the Atlantic Ocean. The dolphins are very distinct in their coloration, travel in large social groups, and are extremely fond of leaping and acrobatic jumping – at times it felt like the water was boiling around the boat and dolphins were streaking in all directions.
