... where you might, after like 30 minutes see one dolphin fin, but NOOOOOO. The moment we got there we found a group of about 4 dolphins, playing jumping, goofing off. They were so close to the boat! Maybe 20 feet? Oh gosh it was incredible. After that we found another group of dolphins, maybe 6 or 7 that were the same way.

For our last day we went out on an organised snorkelling trip, calling in to see some bottle-nosed dolphins in the wild, and one of the beaches in the marine park on the way.
