Observation details

Small groups of 6-12 or so would skatter as the boat went along. Usually saw them diving/scattering before seeing them stationary in the water. Often they would dive first, swim underwater maybe 20' then rise and then make their slow takeoff. They would almost bounce along on the waves as they took off.
