Creature on the T R Thompson dive of 21st April.


Sorry about the quality but they are screen grabs from a Quicktime movie on a digital camera. Very envious of the guys in the water was tempted to "fall" in.

My money's on the creature being a Saddleback Dolphin , I like this name better than it's other name 'Common Dolphin' ID features for me are the beak, the dark edging to the dorsal fin and the distinctive 'V' marking under the Dorsal fin. Only a guess though, my BDMLR training was a long time ago and we didn't have real mammals!

Whoa! That comment came and went fast ! Just caught a glimpse of it. Yep the viz is getting there and as a back-up plan were visiting GOZO later in the year to check-out the crystal clear blue waters!
