From Drake Bay, Osa Peninsula we went out to find the resident group of Pantropical Spotted dolphins. Almost immediatly we say a small group of mostly juveniles and some adult dolphins. The group showed different behaviour of hunting and resting.
We spotted a second group nearly 30 minutes later. This group consist of mostly adults. Both groups belong to the same population.
