Bottle-nosed dolphin Bottle-nosed dolphin

The waters of Jervis Bay are home to a population of these friendly, intelligent animals.

They are very sociable creatures and communicate through a complex system of squeaks and whistles.

The bottle-nosed dolphin gets its name from its distinctive short, thick snout.

These dolphins travel in groups of 10-15, called ‘pods’. They can swim at speeds of up to 30 km per hour, and can dive as deep as 250m below the water’s surface!

Bottle-nosed dolphins mostly eat fish, but won’t say no to crustaceans, shrimp or squid.

Late afternoon at Murrays Boat ramp are the best time and place to have a chance at spotting bottle-nosed dolphins at Booderee.
