year of the dolphin

Schooner Heron has sailed many offshore miles in the company of dolphins. It's quite a different experience to see and play with them closer inland. This year around Maho & St. John in general it seems like we've been seeing more than usual.

It is an amazing experience to be is such close contact with these intelligent and playful creatures. And now here on St John we have been experiencing that same joy and as well as be able to share it with our guests. On several of our snorkel sails this year, Heron has been joined by our friends the dolphins. They love to play in the bow wake, and once Heron gets cruising, there is plenty of fun to be had. Here is a photo of one pair ( a mom & baby) who escorted us into Leinster Bay. It is one of the reasons to get out on the water and join them in their environment.

Hope to see you on the Heron to share the experience!

Love dolphins! We see them a lot here in southwest Florida but our water isn't as clear though so they can be hard to see. Then 2 weeks ago I was able to hug and touch them in at dolphin encounters in the Bahamas which was pretty amazing. Gotta love these guys!
