Encountering dolphins is always a magical moment.
Dolphins – more precisely they are mostly bottlenose dolphins – can often be seen in the canal between Scedro and Zavala while the sea is calm. But a little patience is needed.
If you are lucky, you will be rewarded with a dolphin encounter while crossing to the island of Hvar by ferry. When looking out of the Apartments to the sea you can sometimes see one or the other dorsal fin, then you have to look closely and stare at the sea with patience.
In September 2017 we were even very lucky three times to see dolphins directly from Nautilus-Bay.
Of course, you will have a better chance if you go on a boat excursion or if you go by taxi boat to the nearby island Scedro.
Our guests were lucky when they made a trip with their boat around the island of Hvar. They were able to observe and photograph a school of dolphins for several hours between the islands of Hvar and Brac. Here are the pictures of Markus for which we thank him very much.
