The area where a dolphin feeds, breeds, socializes, and travels is called its home range. In Sarasota the home range is about 35 miles along the coast. A few local dolphins move much farther from time to time. Males tend to have larger ranges than females. In other areas, bottlenose dolphins have a winter and a summer home range. Populations along the U.S. Atlantic seaboard migrate north in the spring and south in the fall.
