The gorgeous, mottled complexion of the Atlantic spotted dolphin, Stenella frontalis, varies across individuals, and especially age. Born without spots, the distinctive black, white and grey speckles accumulate across their skin as they mature.

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.

Fits perfectly

The sun suit is made with high quality, slightly thicker material then other suits that I have. Strong stitching, quality construction and I love the thumb loop so the sleeves stay put. The suit looks great. I love it!
I’m 5’10 and 135lb.s. The medium is just right.

R.H. (West Palm Beach, FL, US)

This Suit fit PERFECTLY and looks even better when you put it on. I felt so confident and cool wearing it!!

Cute Sun Suit

Bought this for my cruise, and it was great! The material is comfortable, and I love the thumb holes in the sleeves. The bottom coverage is a bit cheekier than I'm used to wearing, so that would be my only recommendation for improvements in the future! It is not thermal wear, so don't count on it keeping you warm in cold water. Over all great product, and will definitely consider other patterns in the future!

I love the suit!! But i ordered an xs and got a s it’s a little big but I love it!

I loved the suit but I ordered a xs and got a small I still love it though!

Hi Brittany! Uh oh! Sounds like there was some human error in pulling your order! So sorry about that! We always offer free, simple, and immediate exchanges, so we would be happy to switch this out for the correct size if you'd like. Just visit the return/exchange portal here: returns.waterlust.com Or send us an email hello@waterlust.com and we'll get you taken care of!

I love it

It's great! It fits exactly as I thought it would. It's comfortable and looks really good on. The only thing I'd say is that in a few areas there are very small off-white/brownish spots. I think these are part of the pattern, but they are not visible in the photos and they look a tiny bit like staining. They are not very noticeable though so I'm overall pleased!

Kristina Ruud-Hewitt (Pinole, CA, US)
Sassy and Perfect

Finally, the Goldilocks of all suits! I love the way this fits, not too short, not too tight, full bum coverage that still manages to look sassy. No chafing, the zipper lays flat too. The weight of the fabric is substantial and unexpectedly luxe, no unflattering skin ripples or dimples to be seen! Also really appreciate the thumbhole sleeves that cover and protect my sun damaged hands. I am a 36D, 5’9”, size 12 and the “Legendary” is perfect. The only hesitation I had when ordering is the lack of built-in bra, but I’m so glad as my sports bras totally work with this suit and provide better support than any built in can.
