National park officers were informed at 10am today (Mar 2) by Like Andaman tour company guide “Pui” that the large pod of dolphins was seen about two nautical miles from the main island in the park.

The dolphins were seen leaping out of the water and playing, putting on a show for the tourists on board, the officers reported.

The school of dolphins found today follows National Park Protection Officer Adul Daraphai reporting spotting a group of false killer whales swimming with about 50-60 dolphins in park waters around Pusar Rock and Koh Payu on Saturday (Feb 29).

In a notice posted today, officers at the Similan Islands National Park urged tour boat companies to proceed with caution.

“If they see these marine animals near the boat, don’t let boat propellers harm these animals. During this time of year there are many marine animals found in the Similan Islands,” the notice said.

“As for tourists, please strictly refrain from feeding these animals. Do not throw garbage into the sea and importantly, please refrain from carrying plastic bags into national parks around the country,” park officers added.
