Today was one of those pinch me I must be dreaming days 😭 whale watching in the morning we ended up surrounded by a huge pod of spinner dolphins, then found a blue whale and watched her surface about 5 times - the most beautiful, peaceful, giant animal 🐋🌴🌊 and the sunset looked like this I mean honestly IS THIS REAL LIFE 🔥(the only way to see dolphins and whales is in the wild and even that should be done ethically, for anyone interested we did a ton of research went with Raja and The Whales 🤙🏼) . . . #srilanka #mirissa #mirissabeach #lovesrilanka #travelphotography #adventure #adventureculture #roamtheplanet #adventureisoutthere #discover #travelasia #sunsetphotography #beachscape #beachphotography #indianocean #spinnerdolphins #wildlifephotography #bluewhale #rajaandthewhales #lovenature #wildernessculture #wildphotography #roamtheworld #saltwatertherapy #landscape #landscapephotography #lovetravel

Spinner Dolphin (stenella longirostris) 30 minutes into our search we came across a pod of dolphins some 200 strong. “200 Minimum” our (excellent) guide Shanaka added when we speculated on numbers. We were forgetting those down below. “What lies beneath”, indeed. Spinning is likely to serve multiple purposes, from dislodging parasites, to communicating. Either way it’s an awesome sight up close. Kalpitiya is renowned for its Wind Surfing, but is also a fantastic location to see super pods of not only these Spinner Dolphins but also Sperm Whales. RULE OF THUMB is that December to April is the best time for Spinner sightings and Feb to April the best times for Sperm Whales. All this 3.5 hours north of Colombo ps if you do head over please do find an ethical tour operator that has an understanding of these animals. • • • • • • • • • • • • • #spinnerdolphins #dolphins #mammals #bbcwildlifepotd #instadaily #earthcapture #blackandwhitephotography #wildlife #wildlifephotography #nature #naturephotography #ocean #openocean #kalpitiya #srilanka #sosrilanka #ceylon #wanderlust #bbctravel #visitsrilanka

Really quick unexpected dolphin shoot. Was out paddle boarding and had my camera in my bag and a mask on me. A pod of spinner dolphins passing by underneath me. These guys are endemic to the Hawaiian islands which means you won’t find them anywhere else in the world. #dolphin #dolphins #hawaiianspinnerdolphins #spinnerdolphins #coralconservation #coralreef #coral #reefsafety #reefsafesunscreen #pollution #conservation #underwaterphotography #photogremy #canonphotography #canon #g7xmarkii #canong7xmarkii #fantasea #fantaseahousing #fantaseafg7xii #hawaii #bigisland #kona #konacoast #wildlife #marinewildlife #oceanography #wildlifephotography #uwphotography

As the spinner dolphin is a wide-ranging, open ocean species, its conservation status is not well known. It is, however, at the center of a major conservation controversy. In the 1980s, fisheries that targeted the yellowfin tuna were responsible for accidentally catching and killing spinner and spotted dolphins, sparking the famous and successful dolphin-safe tuna campaign. The tendency of adult yellowfin tuna in the eastern Pacific Ocean to school with similarly sized adult dolphins led to the unfortunate habit of fishermen setting their nets around dolphin pods with the hope of catching the nearby tuna. That activity is now illegal in most places around the world, but scientists believe that several million spinner and spotted dolphins have been killed in tuna nets. This species now has legal protection throughout much of its range and is the focus of several international conservation efforts. However, continued study is needed to determine the direction of population trends and the conservation status of this species. @pelagicsafari 2/4 . . . . #underwaterphotography #underwater #mammal #dolphins #spinnerdolphins #freediving #animals #wildlife #speed #sony #sonya6000 #natgeoyourshot #natgeo #natgeowild #ocean #seaofcortez #blue #clearwater #cabosanlucas #mexico #bajacaliforniasur #openocean

We wrapped up our last full day in Hawaii snorkeling in the Pacific Ocean with bottlenose and spinner dolphins, then traveling to the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Swimming with the dolphins was breathtaking. We were surrounded by an estimated 200 dolphins (per guides and boat captain). The spinner dolphins were very interactive and would swim up from the bottom of the ocean next to you- literally an arm’s length away. The volcanoes national park was amazing as well. The craters were once filled with lava, and we toured the park down to the sea arch. It was a perfect end to our trip before we fly out tomorrow. I am going to miss this paradise island. 💙 @kraft_c07 #Hawaii #bigisland #kailuakona #kona #konacoast #coast #hawaiiancoast #dolphins #bottlenosedolphin #spinnerdolphins #dolphinsnorkel #snorkel #pacificocean #ocean #marinelife #aquaticlife #volcanicrock #volcanonationalpark #volcano #wildlife #island #paradise #honeymoon

If people JUST FLOAT, dolphins stay in the bay all day. If people don’t disturb dolphins WE DON’T NEED THE NEW LAW. But people are getting more and more extreme every year, we even saw a guy with a hand held motor to go swim with the dolphins so it’s only getting worse, it’s a lawless land out there in the water. . . . #hawaii #dolphins #spinnerdolphins #justfloat #ハワイ #イルカ #ハシナガイルカ #ドルフィン #御蔵島

As we were sailing the sea starting surging all around the front of the boat, then so many spinner dolphins emerged and were racing the boat. Their leaping and playful energy was so joyful to watch. We also saw striped dolphins. So beautiful! 🌊🐬

We started our trip on the Kailua Kona coast, and it has been unbelievable. Seeing green sea turtles 30 minutes into our trip was just the beginning. With an affinity for water, of course we have been swimming and diving at every possible location. Jumped off the boat just off the coast from Captain Cook. Did you know, dolphins have opposite sleep schedules from humans? We chose a #dolphinsmart boat crew and kept our distance while these beautiful animals were in active recovery. Thank you Sherry, Phil and Charlie for a great time out at sea. • • • • • • #ocean #freediving #loveforwater #dolphins #captaincook #moogy #fitfam #fitness #spinnerdolphins #dolphinsmartcertified

Two weeks ago I was lucky enough to go on an awesome snorkeling trip with @koolinaoceanadventures off of Oahu's west coast. It was magical trip. A big pod of spinner dolphins danced all around our boat, and the reefs where we dived were full of beautiful fish.

"One of the most beautiful and blue water days I have ever had with these lovely mammals aboard on @pelagicsafari The playful spinner dolphin makes itself known with a splash. Skilled acrobats, the small dolphins regularly leap out of the water and perform complicated aerial maneuvers. They can spin multiple times in one leap, which can be nearly 10 feet high. The leaping and spinning likely serve several purposes, including the removal of irksome remoras, fish that latch on to eat parasites. Biologists also think the dolphins use their moves to communicate, each one signaling something different: 'Let's go' or 'Danger!' or 'I find you attractive.'"

Dolphins vary from fish in a number of ways. Both dolphins and fish have adapted to live their whole lives in the water, both have streamlined bodies and fins. But, dolphins are mammals and so they need regularly visit the surface to breathe air to survive, otherwise they would drown. Fish on the other hand extract oxygen from the water and do not need to surface. ​. ​. ​. ​. ​. ​. ​. ​. ​. ​. ​. ​. ​. ​. ​. ​. ​. ​. ​. ​. ​. ​. ​. ​. ​#natgeoyourshot #oahu #hawaiivacation #aloha #underwaterphotographer #underthesea #oceanlife #spinnerdolphins

Spinner dolphins rotate in the air to dislodge parasites, communicate, or probably also just for fun.

Spinner dolphins live in large pods from a few dozen to a thousand or more in tropical and subtropical zones around the world. They are the most abundant dolphin species in the Indian Ocean 🐬 . . . #spinnerdolphins #maldives #divebutlerzen
