On The Trail Of The Pink Dolphin

Boats Before The Rain

I’m taking the night boat to Surat Thani.

After almost a week Koh Tao has grown stale on me, not to mention crowded. I miss being the only farang in town, so I’m off to chase marine mammals. In particular, the Lonely Planet mentions a ‘breed’ of pink dolphins that can be watched from the pier of a small town not far from here. They could be Orcaella brevirostis or Susa chinensis, both of which often have pink/albino individuals, but I can’t find out anything more about them. I’ll have to go and see for myself.

Don’t expect daily updates. I may be some time.

    I saw a pack of pink dolphins off the coast of Malaysia a couple years ago. Although rare, I think they’re spotted more frequently now and have even been on the Gulf Coast in the US.

    Envy! Were they really pink, or are they just called that?
