Pink Dolphin Sighting
Take a twenty-minute boat ride down Amazon River to try to spot some “pink dolphins” (Inia Geoffrensis) as they leap and swim about. The Amazon River dolphins are one of the few species of fresh water and the most well-known river dolphins. They range in color depending on their age; juveniles are dark gray on the dorsal side, lighter gray on the ventral side medium sized, with long beaks, a stocky body, and prominent forehead. As they mature, the ventral side and flanks turn pink; you may think they’re almost mystical. They become lighter with age, tinged with white and blue-gray coloring. The pink dolphins are often found singly or in pairs. Watch as they gregariously bound and show off sometimes even alongside the boats.
