Relaxed Bottlenose dolphins along Keurbooms Beach

Bottlenose dolphins generally spend time close inshore, travelling or resting in the surf zone because it is thought to be a safe zone for them to be in. The turbulence created by the waves crashing onto the beaches disguises them from predators by masking their communication sounds. On our boat trip yesterday (Wednesday) we had an amazing sighting of ±70 individuals travelling slowly along Keurbooms Beach. Occasionally a few curious animals approached the boat for a closer look.
