Dolphins bowriding in Peru

Peru is one of the worlds best dolphin and whale watching destinations. More than 30 species of whales and dolphins can be observed in Peruvian waters.
The Peruvian NGO Mundo Azul has registered more than 1600 Bottlenose dolphins in the area between Lima and Paracas (240 KM of coastline). When traveling with Nature Expeditions you are benefitting the conservation of dolphins by directly supporting Mundo Azuls conservation work and research. Dolphin and whale watching tours start from Pucusana port near Lima – for reservations write to natureexpeditions@gmail.com – This video shows dolphins bowriding.

Bowriding from a dolphins perspective

This video shows dolphins bowriding under water – the camera was mounted under the boat.
In Peru you can observe more than 30 species of whales and dolphins. The Peruvian NGO Mundo Azul has also found out that the central Peruvian coast counts with one of the highest bottlenose dolphin densities world wide, with more than 1600 animals identified in only 240 km of coastline. All this makes Peru on of the best places in the world to observe whales and dolphins. And our dolphins – as you may see in the video – love bowriding.

Dolphin watching in Peru – Threat or oportunity?

Dolphin watching gives value to nature and creates jobs in coastal communities. In Peru it can be a tool against illegal killing of dolphins for human consumption. Up to 3000 dolphins still get killed each year. But if dolphin watching is badly done it is merely another threat to the species survival. The video explores cases of bad tourism practice in Paracas, Peru and shows alternatives.

This short video was taken by Evelyn Borner, dolphin conservation volunteer with the Peruvian conservation group Mundo Azul, during the dolphin survey november 2010
