Dolphins sighting at Sisters islands on Tue 22 Jun 2004

Category : marine

"It was SO amazing to see dolphins frolicking in Singapore waters! They were doing flips and jumps, cocking half their bodies out of the water too! Approximately 10 of them were just playing around that area and we sat there and watched them for about half an hour. AMAZING!"

"It was an experience of a lifetime! Even when I saw dolphins in Australia, the feeling is different: to see dolphins in our own backyard, and in the wild, means so much more than to see it anywhere else."

- Jani Thuaibah, who was on a field trip with other members of the Marine Biology Lab, NUS Biological Sciences. She had left her camera behind that day, so Chim Chee Kong's photos are still the best we have of dolphins in local waters.

Sister's Islands are south-west of St. John's Islands, are also known as Pulau Subar laut and P. Subar Darat and are administered by Sentosa Development Corporation. Records of dolphin and other interesting sightings are also maintained at the "Anecdotal observations of marine life" page in the Coral Reefs of Singapore site.

Keep looking and reporting everyone!
