Range And Habitat Of The Bottlenose Dolphin

Where do bottlenose dolphins live? A better question might be where don’t bottlenose dolphins live, because most of the earth’s seas and oceans are their home. Just about the only salt waters where they can’t be found are those in earth’s arctic and subarctic regions.

In spite of their very broad range, however, bottlenose dolphins seem to prefer to stay along the coastlines of continents and islands, where the waters are shallower and the populations of the fish they prey upon are larger.

Where do bottlenose dolphins live? Just about anywhere they want to, including the open ocean—though you’re more likely to find them making their homes in estuaries and tidal areas where fish are plentiful.
