Brown Boobies and Dolphins
On one of our sea days we managed to see some interesting wildlife. A large seabird with long pointed wings, webbed feet, and a distinctive white lower breast and belly followed our ship and delighted us by fishing along side. The Brown Booby, or Sula leucogaster, plunge dives from heights up to fifty feet about the ocean's surface. The bird folds in his wings just before hitting the water and can dive up to six feet below the surface.
In addition, we also saw a large pod of dolphins swimming nearby.
