Behaviours of the Gibraltar Dolphins…explained
Bow-riding is the most common behaviour that is usually seen onboard our dolphin charters. This behaviour is when the dolphins get close to the vessel to interact with the waves in a playful manner. The Dolphin pods usually do this to enhance their bond as a pod but also to strengthen their muscles. However, this is usually a joyful and playful behaviour.
This behaviour is used by the dolphins to communicate with other members of the pod. This is usually done when the dolphin is swimming upside down. The Dolphin flick their tails on the water to make the desired vibrations that will be interpreted by other dolphins.
The theory is that dolphins use this method to distract calves who could have been disturbed by passing vessels. This is a reassurance communication tool.
This behaviour is when the dolphin is feed racing out of the water in a vertical direction. The Dolphins are accustomed to vessels so this is one of their preferred party tricks to get their attention.
A breach may be full bodied or partial, and is considered a social, playful and communication behaviour.
Breaching is also considered a behaviour that reinforce relationships between pod members, improves communication and muscles.
