August the 12th, 2020 – Dolphins are a favourite sight of just about everyone. Their playful attitude and friendliness even towards unknown humans has set these beautiful creatures apart and placed them into a league of their very own even among the stunning array of animals we share our planet with. Some beautiful footage of dolphins playing in the sparkling Adriatic between the Dalmatian islands of Iz and Ugljan has delighted many.

The Croatian Adriatic is rich with wildlife owing to its level of purity and cleanliness. From sea urchins which are known to be the living ”certificate” of clean water to sharks, whales and sea turtles, Croatia’s hypnotic waters are full of life. Dolphins are a common sight along the length of the Croatian coastline, and just about the only thing that can make Dalmatia even more gorgeous is the sight of dolphins leaping out of the water.

As Morski writes on the 11th of August, 2020, some lucky passengers and crew on the Anamarija ship which was operating along the the high-speed Rava – Veli Iz – Mali Iz – Zadar line, got to witness a truly beautiful sight in the more moderate morning temperatures. A group of ever-curious dolphins followed the vessel for a little while, as the sun lazily broke over the horizon, providing an absolutely breathtaking sight.

”This morning between Iz and Ugljan, at around 06:20, we were accompanied by this playful group of dolphins, which I just had to video,” said Filip Buksa, who was among those travelling to the Dalmatian city of Zadar that morning, in which this group of dolphins decided to put on a show for those on board.
