A group of about 15 Common dolphins, a nursery group, swam over to and spent quite a while bow riding in front of our whale watching tour boat along Costa Adeje this morning. Common dolphins are an oceanic species and usually seen far offshore of Tenerife. This group was just a few kilometres off shore of Costa Adeje, in the same area we often see Pilot whales.
A nursery group is made up of babies, juveniles and usually a ...
Today we had a great encounter with a very large group of Striped dolphins while exploring along Costa Adeje. Striped dolphins are an oceanic species of dolphin usually found offshore in the open ocean in groups that can be several hundred individuals.
The group of Striped dolphins we observed this morning in Tenerife was estimated to be over 200 individuals. This was a very active group with a lot of synchronised porpoising and even some jumping and dancing ...
Today we encountered a well known pair of Bryde’s whales, a mother and calf, that have been sporadically seen along Costa Adeje on our whale watching tours for over a year now. We can identify these two by the unique markings on the adult females dorsal fin (with a good photo!). This time we managed to get the drone up and collect some wonderful video of the two Bryde’s whales swimming together.
Bryde’s whales are unique in that they are one ...
A very curious Pilot whale approached and seemed to interact with the whale watching boat today! Luckily we got the GoPro in the water quickly and managed to collect some of this wonderful interaction. An amazing species that we feel very privileged to see in such a large resident population here along Costa Adeje, Tenerife.
Spotted dolphins are one of our guest favourites as they often swim over to the boat and seem to enjoy bow riding or pacing alongside the boat, often leaping mere meters away from our excited guests (and crew!). GoPro underwater footage gives us a glimpse into their ocean realm.
Racing over to the boat, bow riding and leaping alongside is not typical behaviour of most whale and dolphin species. Yet when we stop the boat to give the dolphins ...
Atlantic Spotted dolphins hunt a bait ball of small fish on this mornings whale and dolphin watching tour along Costa Adeje, Tenerife. Exciting to observe their underwater activity with the help of the GoPro.
Bottlenose dolphins hunt as a team, encircling the prey fish. In the open ocean there is no where to trap fish, so the Bottlenose dolphins work in a group pushing the fish towards the surface where the fish have no where to escape.
