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.
Great day for whale watching tours along Costa Adeje with wonderful observations of Common dolphins and Spotted dolphins bow riding. These two species were even mixing for the opportunity to race alongside our boat! Amazing moments like these are one of the reasons we love to share whale watching trips with our guests.
