As water temps start to warm up during our Spring
season, we also see increased activity from our resident wild dolphins.
The dolphins in the Socorro Islands
show no fear of divers, in fact; just the opposite. They are delighted to get up
close and personal with you, often just a few feet away. But this encounter involving
three dolphins and a "dance" was simply amazing, even for Socorro.
No enticement is ever introduced in our
dolphin encounters. Everything you see is actual dolphin behavior,
and most of the behaviors are driven by the hierarchy and mating
order that exists in any group of dolphins.
