About dolphins in Port de Pollensa:
Many people who has seen dolphins, it has probably been in dolphinariums – in Mallorca, we have the Marineland delfinarium which is awarded by their dolphin and sea lions show. Not many people have been able to see dolphins in wild, and now it is possible from Port de Pollensa.
These animals swim up to 65km each day, use highly developed fishing techniques and have strong social bonds. Wild dolphins are sociable, speedy sea-dwellers, so the experience you get on a dolphin watching tour is really dependent on them – and on the weather. Each dolphin species has its own unique behaviour – with bottlenose dolphins being some of the most friendly, dusky dolphins of the southern hemisphere being more outgoing and acrobatic, and spinner dolphins being some of the most exciting, as they twist their bodies through the air.
With the expertise of a great captain and crew, you can do a dolphin watching trip and see these animals in wild.
