Photographer's Note

This guys are two from the Spinner Dolphis family that lives in the island of Fernando de Noronha, PE, Brazil. They live in the "baía dos golfinhos" (Dolphin´s Bay) where they are protected by the law. So it´s not allowed to dive with them. (just authorized person and for cientific purposes.) I was aboard the diving operator´s boat, just waiting time between the first and the second day´s diving when suddenly this group of dolphins got close to the boat. Considering we are out off the dolphin´s bay, I took my mask and camera and got wet as soon as possible, even without finns. This is a little bit from what I saw... I didn´t used flash because I was just a couple of meters underwater, where the dophins are. Nice underwater, nice over it. This dolphis name´s is "spinner" because they jump out of water and spinn many times before fall in the water again. A beautiful animal! One of my favorites! Fernando de Noronha is a nice island far from the mainland. Very natural! Like a caribbean island, but without development. If you are planning a travel to Brazil and you like sea, think about Fernando de Noronha, and just check about a nice place to stay, because there are just few and expensive places like this. Most of the available places are very simple rooms at local people houses. Regards!
