Tips To Enjoy Dolphin Tours

Active From Day to Night

Dolphins are active from day to night although they are mostly active during the morning and afternoon. You’ll see them in their usual playful self when you go on a dolphin trip with Voyager Deep Sea Fishing & Dolphin Cruises. Whatever they do during the day depends on their habitat’s condition, the time of year, time of day, as well as the physical conditions of the dolphin’s bodies.

Sleeping Behavior

There’s a general uncertainty about how dolphins sleep, but following several studies, it was discovered that they do sleep but not like the way humans do. Because they need some level of conscious ness to get to the surface and breathe, one cerebral hemisphere remains active while the rest sleeps. But, dolphins in captivity have a different resting behaviour compared to wild dolphins because their blowhole are kept off the water and they don’t respond to light stimuli, having a much deeper sleep, maybe because they are not worried about predators in their tanks that may threaten them.

Travel Behavior

Some species are moving from one location to another in a nearly straight direction. You may see this during your dolphin cruises North Myrtle Beach. They could move alone or in the company of others, swimming on the water surface to save the energy created by the friction of the water on their submerged body, so they could orient themselves better or to remove the parasites in their skin. In case they’re resting, they will group tightly and they will surface often so they can breathe.

Feeding Behavior

The feeding activities of dolphins could be done in groups or individually, with cooperation with one another to capture bigger prey and more spending less energy. One unusual behaviour is when they “cough” so they could throw their food out. You might notice this behaviour when you go on a dolphin cruise.

Some dolphins show characteristics of culture development, considering this as a set of ideas, knowledge, beliefs, customs, as well as practices learned in the society, and then transmitted from one generation to another. This conclusion came to be after watching these cetaceans protect their snout from surfaces that rough using marine sponges and then later on their offspring also performed this; a trait that wasn’t inherited but transmitted from the parents to their offspring.

They Love To Play

In dolphin cruises Myrtle Beach, you’ll notice that these creatures that are known to be curious. They love playing with other dolphins and with objects, too. They like to jump to about 4.9 meters above the water surface and then fall either on their belly down or on their backs. They also follow of the waves of the bow or the stern of boats. Most dolphins play with each other by chasing one another.

They use objects and pass them to others to get their attention. They make bubbles in the water and then they also take the time to recreate themselves in the water. In some cases, the playful behaviour includes other dolphin species and animals including Risso’s Dolphins, pantropical spotted dolphins, pilot whales, and humpback whales.
