    Could be striped or Atlantic spotted. Is there any description that can add details?

      I will ask. He did mention those two species as candidates. Also Clymene …

        I would not think Clymene, that light grey blaze running up from near the eye towards the dorsal fin doesn’t fit well, also the dorsal fin shape is not spot on. An un-spotted spotted is my no. 1 guess …

    Yes, spotless, I think subadult atlantic spotted dolphin too. When I crossed the Atlantic once I saw quite a few of them and often I spotted more unspotted spotted dolphins than spotted spotted dolphins, on that spot…

    Thank you guys for the comments.
    Indeed there was a great chance that it was effectively a ‘unspotted’ Spotted Dolphin.
    Atlantic or Pantropical for a birder, I can only say, it’s difficult to me but the day before we had a pod of Spotted Dolphin at less than 15km from this spot.
