Common Dolphin on the CRESLI Great South Channel Trip

Common Dolphin, my favorite Dolphin so far! I Love seeing these mammals out in the ocean. I have seen them here in NYC waters from time to time and they are so much fun to be around.

I was on the CRESLI trip, run by Artie Kopelman, to the great south channel on August 13th to the 15th.

We just left a pod of Risso's dolphins and we ran into this big pod of Common Dolphins.

All my encounters are basically the same with Common Dolphins...AWESOME!

The Dolphin pod spots the boat.

The whole pod quickly changes directions in unison and heads directly at the boat.

In minutes, there are common dolphin very close and all around the boat.

They are riding the bow pressure waves of the boat, playing, jumping, making very loud clicks and by the looks of it they are having a blast doing all this!

YES, every time it’s the same and it happened on the CRESLI Trip. It was a short but sweet visit with the Common’s but what a great experience and the photos, because they are so close always come out great.

Here are a few photos…
