A group of bottlenose dolphins joined Jadrolinija on their way to Vis. 

September 19, 2018 – With the summer nearing its end, it’s safe to say that most of us will welcome a feel-good story or two – and especially when dolphins are the stars of the show. 

Such is the story of six bottlenose dolphins spotted by the Blue World Institute on Tuesday. The playful dolphins were seen at the front of Jadrolinija’s ‘Petar Hektorović’ ferry, riding the bow pressure waves of the boat. The ferry was just approaching the Vis bay.

“Our last sighting of a group of six bottlenose dolphins happened yesterday just at the entrance to Vis bay. We finished with photographing, the sun just went down and the “Petar Hektorović“ ferry was running with 12 knots towards Vis. Both us and the dolphins were literally on our way. We decided to move aside. The dolphins obviously had another plan,” wrote the Blue World Institute on their Facebook page. 

For a Wednesday pick-me-up, take a look below. 

The Blue World Institute of Marine Research and Conservation is a Croatian NGO that focuses on scientific research and the conservation of marine organisms and the environment.
