 PISL18 - DOLPHIN WATCHING (approx. 2 hours) - Portuguese Island, Mozambique
   Mozambique has got to be one of the most incredible destinations in the world for watching marine mammals. What most people are interested in when they think of dolphins is the way that they “talk.” Dolphins identify themselves with a unique signature whistle which is essentially like their own thumbprint. The sounds can be produced by the movements of the air in the trachea and nasal sacs. The sounds are a variety of clicks, moans, grunts, squeaks and so on. Some of their sounds even resemble creaking doors, not to mention whistling. The sounds can vary in volume, pattern and frequency and they are used to call their calf, alert other dolphins or simply to show that they are having fun. Dolphins are amazing in every way. From the way they “surf” next to a bow of a boat, or jump almost 20 feet in the air. What you may not realize is that there are always reasons for what they do. Although it looks like they are just having fun, it actually ingrained in them to follow these certain behaviors. For example, when you see them swimming next to a boat, it is because they are hitching a ride so to speak. The currents that are pushed forward by the boat help them to retain some of their energy because they just go along with the currents. What is most fascinating is the way that they interact with fellow mammals, humans and one another. Although we may never totally grasp the dolphin’s nature or personality, at least we can sit back, watch and enjoy it. Please note: sightings of dolphins cannot be guaranteed even though it is dolphin season. Drinks can be purchased for cash on the boat.
