WATCH: Dusty the Wild Atlantic Way Dolphin loves to get his belly rubbed


A photographer has captured the adorable moment that Dusty the dolphin entertained visitors at the Aran islands.

Elaine Farrell was waiting for a ferry to Inis Oirr when she spotted the Wild Atlantic Way dolphin at the harbour.

"Dusty the dolphin was already in the harbour as we sailed in, and he put on quite a show for all the day-trippers to the island.

"I was the only person on the harbour when I noticed someone snorkeling in the water with the dolphin," Elaine Farrell told Independent.ie.

"They swam alongside each other, the dolphin following the swimmer when she got out of the water, rolling over to have his belly rubbed. Dusty clearly enjoyed the human contact."

Elaine said that the playful dolphin put on a show for over two hours.

Dusty is surely giving Fungi a run for his money as our new favourite dolphin.
