Frolicking dolphins of Rapu-Rapu

UPDATE (26 Aug): Prompted by Gurugeek's comment at our Planet Naga aggregator, I did some tweaking on the raw footage and re-uploaded it on Youtube. It's now working though a little blurry.

COURTESY of my city planning colleague Tali Pabines's digital camera, I am sharing with you via Youtube a magical moment involving frolicking dolphins between Rapu-Rapu, Albay and Legazpi City at around 5 pm today.



There were about of dozen of these that, for a good 10 minutes or so, provided a spectacular sight one hour after we departed from the town. The farthest one, in fact, had a mid-sized dolphin fully jumping into the air before disappearing again into the seawaters.

How and why we got there I will answer in my next posts. Happy viewing and a blessed weekend for the meantime.

Hi Dave:) I wonder if these occur regularly and if it does, why is it not being promoted.

Yesterday's experience more than made up the boring 2:45 min journey.:)

I also saw dolphins on ferry ride to Catanduanes. It was heavily raining at that time (signal #1 was just lifted that allowed the ferry to proceed).

Last I saw dolphins was off the coast of Cebu. They were really a sight to see.

Hi Janette: So, it appears these dolphins do frequent the area. A logical jump-off point for these "dolphin-watch" activities would be the Misibis resort development, which is located in nearby Cagraray island.

Schumey: They really are. You can just hear the excited voices in the background, and they continued well into the remainder of that otherwise boring return trip.

hmm... it's good you saw them frolicking. Albay and Lagonoy gulfs are fishing grounds for dolphins and whales. So, you also might encounter dolphins chopped, being sold in fish markets. Sad encounters on such occasions.
