A nice day with our 3 resident dolphin species

Today was another day of good weather and to make it better we had dolphins everywhere.
We had 3 different species of dolphins: common, Risso's (in the photo below) and bottlenose dolphins. The common dolphins were spread across a large area, all the time with a very calm behaviour and happy to welcome the boats. On the other hand the bottlenose were in a small group and not so interested in seeing us. The Risso´s dolphins were in a group of about 12 individuals, and these ones let us come closer. We had the chance to stay with them for a few minutes, allowing people to enjoy the moment. The calm sea and the warm sun helped to make it  a nice day on the ocean.
