Due to the winter season, dolphins are not visible at all in the morning and evening. After coming out of the water for a few seconds, it goes back into the deep water. On the first day, the dolphin was not seen till noon. On this the team returned disappointed. Arrived the next morning in the morning and kept on looking for the dolphins for a long time.
