A pre-Corona-trip last year (March 2020) brought us to Central-Chile.
We did not see a lot of mammals, but did enjoyed the country and trip. Unfortunate we had to end our vacation prematurely due to COVID-pandemic.
From to coast of Puerto Montt we did some sea watching.
We saw both Dusky and Chilean Dolphins in some nice pods. We also saw a solo dolphin, slowly following the coastline. We were able to take 1 recordshot (see below). The dorsal fin doesn’t seem to really fit either of that species, although I have read that male Dusky’s have longer and more curved dorsal fins. The dorsal fin reminded me somehow to the photo of Jon of Peale’s Dolphin: https://www.mammalwatching.com/2018/12/04/chile-2009/
What do you think of this dolphin?
Thanks in advance.
