Roebuck Bay is home to the world’s only resident population of snubfin dolphins. Measuring around 2 meters in length, the snubfin dolphin is much smaller than the more commonly seen bottlenose. And was only identified as a unique species in 2005. Named for its tiny dorsal fin, this species is a slow-moving marine mammal and, just like the locals in our town, seems to run on Broome Time! They are often nicknamed snubbies’ to go with their endearing nature.
These playful dolphins are slightly larger than ‘snubfin dolphins, at around 2.7 meters long. Occasionally seen riding the bow of our catamaran, these playful dolphins will live in close association with other dolphin species, and mixed pods are often seen along our coastline.
