3 long weeks...

Yup, it has been three very long weeks since we've seen whale sharks. But we keep on heading out there to try our luck. One great thing is that there is always something to see in the oceans (the eternal optimist). A few days ago we were on our way out to go look for some sharks with the Shark Research Institute and we came across a lovely pod of Roughtooth Dolphins! They were really interested in us and hung around our group for a good hour: darting in and out of the snorkelers. One individual was particularly inquisitive and spent a long while within arms reach of the snorkelers. Credit to the group, no one actually touched the dolphins but the experience was incredible.

If you have an interest in the environment of Utila, check out our local newspaper, either in print or on line

or check out the website of the Whale Shark & Oceanic Research Center:
