Bimini: Communication

Dolphins have a variety of ways they communicate with each other and with humans. Many of us, when we think of dolphin sounds, hear the laughter that Flipper often projected in the television show. They more often use clicks or clicking to share or say hello. They are astute at sonar – they send signals […]

Bimini: Invitation

Once in the waters the dolphins would truly choose when they surfaced to come toward individuals.
