Species Spotted: Striped Dolphins

The striped dolphin is the most frequently sighted species during our excursions, this is because it is an animal very present throughout the Ligurian Sea. Estimates speak of about 30,000 individuals in the summer period. Despite being a regular encounter, every sighting is different because each group of spinner dolphins has different behavioral characteristics from the others. Today we observed three: a couple of about 15 individuals and a much larger one, between 40 and 60 animals.
