SEVERAL PODS OF BOTTLENOSE DOLPHINS WERE OBSERVED DURING PATROLS ABOARD AUX 27137 ON 28JUL, 02AUG, & 08AUG .

BOATERS SHOULD ALWAYS STOP WHEN DOLPHINS ARE AROUND THEIR VESSEL TO MAKE SURE THE PROP DOES NOT INJURE OR KILL THESE BEAUTIFUL MARINE MAMMALS. BRING YOUR BOAT TO A STOP & ENJOY THE OPPORTUNITY TO OBSERVE CLOSE-UP. THEY ARE PLAYFUL AND WILL SWIM ALONGSIDE OR EVEN UNDER A BOAT. BOATERS SHOULD ALSO NOT TRY TO FEED DOLPHINS AS THEIR DIGESTIVE SYSTEMS CANNOT TOLERATE HUMAN FOOD.
