Dolphins and windy weather

Today and yesterday we went out to try to show cetaceans to our guests. At this time of the year the weather in the Azores is windy, rainy a a bit foggy too. These conditions are not the best find whales and dolpins because it is difficult for our vigias (onshore lookouts) to spot whales very far from shore. But still we ended up with common dolphins, Risso's dolphins and bottlenose dolphins. Not bad considering the conditions. We must wait for the end of winter to start seeing the big baleen whales.
