Today we drove to sight the dolphins of which we saw lots. Bottlenose Dolphins need quick access to the surface for air because they can only stay 15 minutes under water at a time, therefore Bottlenose Dolphins usually are shallow divers and stay close to the surface so it was easy for us to see lots. They jumped out of the water very gracefully. From where we were it seemed like the water they were in would only up to my chest. The Bottlenose Dolphin can grow up to 2.8 metres. The biggest known Bottlenose Dolphin is 3.9 metres.
