Atlantic spotted dolphin (Stenella frontalis), are the more frequently seen of two different species of spotted dolphins found in the Abacos; the other species is the pan-tropical spotted dolphin (Stenella attenuata). Spotted dolphins are not born with spots, but actually accumulate them as they mature, becoming quite mottled-looking as adults. Hence, young spotted dolphins are often confused with bottlenose dolphins, and sometimes the two species will interact, which adds to the confusion. Spotted dolphins have a more slender snout, and although they can almost reach the same length as bottlenose dolphins, they have a smaller girth and thus body weight.

Atlantic spotted dolphins are a year-round resident species in the Abacos. Individuals photo-identified 20 years ago can still be seen ranging along the eastern and southwestern coasts of Abaco. They are commonly seen in groups of 20-50 dolphins in the oceanic waters where they feed on flying fish and squid, and rarely venture on to the bank. However, in the northwestern part of Little Bahama Bank this species can regularly be found along the western edge of the banks during the daytime where they come to rest and socialize.

Atlantic Spotted Dolphin Legging

Great fabric, heavy enough to hold shape well. Slick surface so nothing sticks to them. Love the unhemmed length as I have a long inseam so worked out great. I don't like the waistband as it is just 2 layers of the fabric with no support system so rolls down very easily. Only will work well for very thin / flat stomach people.

Smooth as Silk

I am very excited about wearing Waterlust in upcoming tropical professional development course!

Jill Silver (Daly City, CA, US)

Cannot wait to wear these in Australia! I love this company

Cat Granger (Columbia, MD, US)
In love!

I am 5.8 and around 136-138 lbs. I got the medium and they're long on me (which I will try to use for snorkeling instead of socks and fold it inward when using it inland. They come right above my belly button, they're squat proof and I especially love that the pattern is mirrored and not random so you get exactly what you see. I am already eying the bike shorts and in the future would definitely purchase again.

Sydney Montgomery (Willow Springs, MO, US)

These are easily some of the best pants I’ve ever had. Amazing quality, I love all of my Waterlust products!

Jacky Fisher (Merritt Island, FL, US)
Love my spots!

This is my 6th legging purchase. I wear them Wing Foiling and SUP Foiling, so they get a lot of water time. Your patterns are so realistic, that I try to only purchase the ones that don’t resemble shark food. I have always bought size S, but this time I decided to try the XS( I was in-between sizes). They fit great!! Actually fit better than the S. I am 5’5, 120 lbs. They fit a little tighter around the waist, and lower legs, which is what I wanted. I love these for the sun protection due to my history of skin cancers. I always get lots of compliments, when wearing them. Thanks so much for such a great product!!
