Dolphin sightings are fairly common, meaning if you go out on boats regularly you are very likely to see dolphins on a regular but by no means daily basis. So when between Sunday to Monday an increased number of dolphins were sighted in front and around of Caye Caulker, it has some of us scratching our head to question our good luck!!

As I said, between Sunday to Monday there were at least 8 different sightings of different size pod groups of Bottlenose Dolphins directly in front of Caye Caulker. On Monday, when the activity seemed to be at its peak, the dolphin activity was very much in front of the two water taxi docks and therefore did not require even a boat to see these beautiful creatures! Pod groups varied from 15 or so dolphins to as small as family units (mother, father and baby). We did question as to whether it was all the same pod that had broken itself down into smaller groups – a possibility but not always common as they normally travel together.

Numbers of tour boats, from Ras Creek, to Anwar Tours, E-Z Boy and even the San Pedro boats stopped to allow their passengers to follow these playful creatures – all just in front of us on Caye Caulker.

The reasoning behind the activity and our good fortune is not clear – was it the opening of conch season (a favorite food source of the dolphins) – perhaps the fisherman cleaning some of their conch on the way home to the island left a scent in in the water or some particular spawning going on in front of Caye Caulker. We are left bewildered but extremely happy at their presence and wish that whatever the reason for their activity, it bring them back again to spend time with us!!
