Photo: Jumping Pacific White Sided Dolphin

Always a highlight when we see some pacific white sided dolphins, especially when they playful and jump close to boats.

To run into a group of dolphins is always a highlight, fortunately we are in an area in which we sometimes even see very large groups with up to 800-1000 pacific white sided dolphins (Lagenorhynchus obliquidens). No matter if we watch a small group or a large, when they are in playing mood things always getting excited. It is not the easiest task to photograph them at all, it actually is often "almost frustrating" as one can see them jumping around everywhere but if your camera is focused on the wrong animal you don't get the shoot of a jumping dolphin.

This one made day for sure as he jumped close to our boat and I had my camera on him - yup - sometimes it also requires a bit more than experience, sometimes it simply needs some luck (but who ever would admit).

We are having a pretty good track record of seeing dolphins on my wildlife & scenery photo tours. Over the last 3 years we seen dolphins on roughly 70% of all the tours. ... continue below the picture...
