One of the best ways to get close to a wild creature on its terms is to organise one of the many dolphin watching tours that are offered around the world. Seeing wild dolphins is a special experience and a million miles from the unethical dolphin ‘encounters’ with captive animals in concrete pools that no nature lover would choose to do.
Knowledgeable guides, such as the ones on Blue Sky Wildlife, know where and when their local dolphins are likely to be found. This is important as dolphins can travel up to 60 miles a day in large pods.
It’s also important to go on a dolphin-watching trip with someone who knows how to approach so they don’t disturb the animals’ natural behaviours. Done properly, a dolphin tour can give you a thrilling insight into these delightful mammals and their watery world.
There are dolphin tours available from Blue Sky Wildlife operators in Spain, Portugal, Sri Lanka, Guyana and Wales to name but a few. And you can see not only marine dolphins such as Bottlenose and Spinner but also rare freshwater species. For example, there are tours that take in the Irrawaddy Dolphins on the rivers of Cambodia, for example, or Pink River Dolphins in the Peruvian Amazon.
In some places, such as Kaikoura in New Zealand, you can arrange to snorkel with dolphins. This is done in a responsible way with proper respect shown to maintaining distance. The policy is not to pursue the animals but allow them to approach if they choose, so you must be prepared to be patient.
Many of the trips combine general wildlife watching, or birding, with dolphin tours so that your holiday covers a variety of nature experiences. Or, if you are heading to somewhere like Portugal on a family holiday, you could just select a half-day outing to see dolphins. There is a lot of choice available for anyone keen to enjoy a dolphin tour.
