Dolphin in Nerja Beach

In the Mediterranean, different types of dolphins can be found, the most common being the bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) and the common dolphin (Delphinus delphis). These dolphins come close to the coast for various reasons, mainly in search of food, reproduction and refuge from predators.

Dolphins usually form groups called pods or bands, which are mainly made up of females, juveniles and calves. These groups organize to protect each other from predators, find food, and socialize with each other.

Dolphins can also be observed on the Costa del Sol and the Costa Tropical, two popular tourist destinations in Spain. On the Costa del Sol, it is common to find the bottlenose dolphin and the common dolphin, as well as occasionally the striped dolphin (Stenella coeruleoalba) and the striped dolphin (Stenella coeruleoalba). In addition to dolphins, it is possible to spot orcas on rare occasions.

To book tours to see dolphins, it is advisable to look for tour companies specialized in whale watching in the area where you are. These companies offer boat excursions with expert guides who know the areas where dolphins are most likely to be found. They also usually provide information about marine life and respect conservation and animal welfare measures.

It is important to choose companies that follow sustainable and responsible tourism practices, such as respecting minimum distances and not altering the natural behavior of dolphins. Also, consult the opinions of other tourists and check if the companies have certifications or recognitions that guarantee their commitment to environmental conservation.
