Dark grey backs, light grey bellies, and bottle-shaped noses. This pod was between 8 and 10 dolphins - it was a bit hard to tell since they never stopped playing with each other and playing catch-up with the front of the boat.
I came across these dolphins in the open waters of the southern Caribbean Sea, a good 10 hours out of Cartagena, Colombia coming from the San Blas of Panama.
There was absolutely no land in sight, and no warning these dolphins were coming up on us. Honestly I thought someone had fallen off the boat when I heard the first splash, but instead I was lucky to be the person on the boat who yelled, "Dolphins!"
