Dolphin Feeding Frenzy!

Another amazing day of touring capped off with a stunning display of Dolphin feeding in the later afternoon.

Australian Salmon (Nothing like Atlantic Salmon. More akin to a very big Herring) are schooling along the South Western Australian coastline at the moment and we were lucky enough to be hiking the Cape to Cape track today and see well over 150 Bottlenose Dolphins herding the Salmon into the shoreline and creating a feeding frenzy.

Dolphins were launching out of the waves with backflips and spins. Some of them jumping in groups of 20 or more at one time.

A real treat.
