The dolphin that was found dead in Boracay was found floating close to the dive site Friday’s Rock. It was found by divers floating at the surface and from the looks of it, it died a for a while already as with the skin was peeling off and one of it’s eye was already gone probably from sea birds.

Photo of what is likely a Spinner Dolphin (Stenella longirostris) carcass found floating close to the dive site known as Friday’s Rock, off Boracay. This carcass looks very different compared to the dead dolphin documented by Bryan S Madera in terms of size, patterns, and injuries. Also, Friday’s Rock is located some distance from Station 3, Barangay Manoc-Manoc, where the other carcass was found, so it’s possible that these represent two different carcasses.
