Dolphins at play in Belize

I'm convinced they appreciate fast swimming things like boats and skiers. These DPV's seem to fascinate them. Juan calls the site 'Captains Canyon' its just in front of the dive shop.Notice when she turns it off and holds out her hand they get board and go away, but she turns it back on and they come back.

Ecological Niche Modeling of Three Species of Stenella Dolphins in the Caribbean Basin, With Application to the Seaflower Biosphere Reserve
Dolphins of the genus Stenella occur in pelagic waters of both tropical and warm-temperate oceans. Three species, the Atlantic spotted dolphin (Stenella frontalis), the pantropical spotted dolphin (S. attenuata), and the spinner dolphin (S. longirostris) are abundant worldwide, but in the Caribbean Basin they have been poorly studied and information on their distribution patterns is scarce. Specifically, in Colombia’s remote Seaflower Biosphere Reserve (SFBR) S. attenuata has been reported occasionally, but S. frontalis and S. longirostris have never been recorded before. To address this information gap, an ecological niche modeling approach was used to determine the potential distribution patterns of these three dolphin species in the region. Records of these species for the Caribbean Basin were compiled, including both published and unpublished data.

Dolphins: two males showing off to a female

If you watch you'll be able to tell that there is a female and these males are courting her. especially two particular males. I think the divers just happened upon some mating dance. From Elbert Greer.

Diving with Dolphins on B&D Ambergris Caye Belize

We saw dolphins in Belize, but on that dive my GoPro was out of charge, so I couldn't record our most phenomenal dive of the week. However, we managed to make contact with another diver in an adjacent group who sent us this video. You can hear the dolphins clearly and see how they were chasing the hapless sharks around. They paused to check out the divers, then went on their way.

Bottlenose dolphins in Belize

On any given dive, you never know what you'll see when you jump into the water, it's an exhilarating feeling. In this case, mother nature provided the highlight of our trip when these four curious bottlenose dolphins investigated us for almost 20 minutes, coming in amazingly close. You can notice them nipping playfully at the harmless nurse sharks around us and hear them constantly talking to each other. The human screams of pure excitement are from our fearless and impassioned dive master, Dimass. It was a real honor to share the ocean with these sentient animals in such an intimate way, easily one of the most incredible experiences of my life.
