  • Bottlenose Dolphin

    Tursiops truncatus

Bottlenose Dolphins are fantastic creatures and their jumps are spectacular !  This species visits us all year round!

Their skin colour can vary from light grey to dark grey all over their body and they are considered to be large dolphins!   

Their head is rounded with a bottle-shaped nozzle. This is what it is named after, in the English language.

Bottlenose dolphins travel in groups although separated by age and gender. However, they are a very sociable species and like to join pilot whales.

They can be up to 3 meters long !
