The Big Blue reported all their dolphin sightings to The Ionian Dolphin Project from summer 2012. The Ionian Dolphin Project aims to ensure the long-term viability of dolphins species living in coastal waters of the eastern Ionian Sea.
The Ionian Dolphin Project have an online facility whereby people can add a sighting of a dolphin in the Ionian and there are many species swimming around Lefkada including: striped, bottlenose, delphinus delphis (short beaked) and Risso dolphins. Since the website was launched in April 2012 there have been 50+ dolphin sightings reported around Lefkada and some truly amazing photographs here:
There is also a lovely video of the bottlenose dolphins bow-riding a boat in the Ionian.
Big Blue are looking forward to seeing many more dolphins on our 2013 trips!
