Dolphin Watch

Today we did a day-hop offshore from St Johns Island Yacht Harbor in Charleston to Dataw Island Marina. As we were approaching the inlet we heard that distinctive snort that can only mean one thing. The crew ran to the pilothouse door with faces full of expectation and shot like two bullets out to the bow when their dad opened the door.


First they looked to port.


Then they looked to starboard.

Then they fanned out to cover the whole bow. Dad was pleased to report that many dolphins were spotted. Miss Dee Dee whimpered and whined as the dolphins leapt out of the water. Maybe she recognized some familiar buddies...


Eventually, the pod of dolphins moved on but Dylan and Dee Dee maintained their posts ever hopeful of their return. The crew has many cruising days ahead of them with many more dolphin sightings to come. We only hope they are not up-close and personal.

You should see how he wiggles his tail when he sees them...
