Description:

Probably same individual as http://www.ispotnature.org/node/716752.
Same spot, 2 days later.
Not much grazing in evidence. Hope its ok. It would be more at home in the bay, but would have to swim Hell's Gate to get back, if that is where it came from.

Description:

A migration of sorts, I think. They were determinedly on the move, North to South, not even stopping to investigate bait balls.
I estimate about 300 individuals.
They performed the characteristic near-vertical leaps, twirling on the longitudinal axis. Sadly not captured in any of the images.

The small dolphin pod kept ranging closely ahead of the whale shark.
