Bottlenose dolphins dwelling the Patagonian coast escort boats and offer a unique performance.
For many years and as a result of its curiosity and lack of shyness, bottlenose dolphins have been captured in order to be displayed in aquariums or be used as bait for spider crab fishing. But, in 2001, bottlenose dolphins were declared Provincial Natural Monument by the government of Santa Cruz. At present, its capture is forbidden. However, changes in behavior amidst its populations have been observed, probably caused by the increase in the number of harbors in Patagonia.
Beloved dwellers of the fjords, streams, bays and river mouths, their favourite “game” is to slide at surface level, jumping, surfing the waves and crossing their way before the boats.
After several minutes of performance, they disappear in the distant horizon, leaving a bright wake in the water.
