The northern Adriatic sea is known for its many sightings of dolphins, who live in these quieter areas and swim around the islands in pods. It isn’t rare to spot them while sailing, as the locals live in harmony with these friendly and intelligent sea creatures. Dolphins are crucial for these areas’ ecosystem and are therefore protected by law. Yachters who sail here can hope for a dolphin sight as there are as many as a 120 dolphin species that swim around. Did you know that like the sharks, the dolphins never sleep? Ask your skipper for more info on dolphin spotting.
