Jervis Bay Dolphins Behaviour – Tail Slapping

23 January 2019 | DWC Blog

We are fortunate enough to see some very interesting things when out on Jervis Bay,

Such behaviours are all an important part of Dolphin (& Whale) communication and can mean a range of things. If the slaps are soft and gentle, the dolphin may be alerting other dolphins or trying to gain their attention. A single explosive slap – or a succession of much firmer slaps is a definite warning sign.
 
Sometimes we also see it as a form of play!
