We have seen them before but never like this. They look like they are having fun but we suspect they are really just snacking on some seasonal delicacy. Any idea what that would be?
No idea what they are eating but we once saw a bunch of dolphins near Isle of Hope and stopped they swam around the boat
but one in particular came around to the stern and stuck his/her head
up out of the water
and looked at us for several seconds. It was almost like the trained ones do in shows.
It might have been expecting us to feed it but we didn't have any dolphin chow on board.
The strangest thing we saw in GA was large stingrays jumping several feet out of the water
and doing flips.
We have seen manatees eating the grass
off marina docks in FL.
