8th of April was a great day to be on the waters of Hervey Bay. The waters were very calm and clear. The bottle-nose dolphin were also very friendly. We enjoyed the company of 3 to start our day with. Two young dolphins spent plenty of time playing under the bow. With the clear calm water we could clearly see the eyes of the dolphins as they rolled and played with us. Then the adult came to the surface with large shell on her rostrum. She then tried to get the animal out of the shell. Great to see and very rare. After the dolphins we then went to Pelican banks for a swim. On our way home we also encountered a pod of indo-pacific humpback dolphins.
