Description

Please have a look through these pictures: maybe they're all of Bottlenose Dolphins (Tursiops truncatus), but we also saw Short-finned Pilot Whales (Globicephala macrorhynchus) and Risso's Dolphins (Grampus griseus) during the tour, and some shots might show one of the 2 species.

Description from Wikipedia

Oceanic dolphins are members of the cetacean family Delphinidae. These marine mammals are related to whales and porpoises. They are found worldwide, mostly in the shallower seas of the continental shelves. As the name implies, these dolphins tend to be found in the open seas, unlike the river dolphins, although a few species such as the Irrawaddy dolphin are coastal or riverine.

No range data available.
