We were lucky to see dolphins  a few years ago when we hired a boat  they were off the coast of paleokastritsa.  We followed them/they swam in front of our boat for at least half an hour.  It was fantastic.  I did post some photos on here but I can't find them x

I must admit we have been going to Arillas for 10 years and haven't seen Dolphins! My binoculars have always been with me on the beach. I must check more often.

I have been dolphin watching  every morning since we arrived on the evening of the big storm but as yet not seen them at all. Hope they haven't left the area.

Been here 5 days now! I spent nearly as much time looking for dolphins or (beached whales...ha) as sitting in the sun, and haven't seen any yet

Actually a whale was beached in Arillas a few years ago, I think it was in the winter and all the men who live all year in the village tried to save it and get it into deeper waters.

Just back home and looking forward to next year. Unfortunately no dolphins over the 2 weeks I hope they turn up for someone during the year!

The dolphins would be wonderful, but we were thrilled to see fireflies in May this year! Never seen them before, as we usually do not travel in spring.
They were lovely!
Dolphins next?
