The past three and a half days here in Ponta Delgada have been pretty bad weather wise. We've definitely had our fair share of rain, wind, rough sea, and poor visibility. This morning it was still pouring with rain, but luckily by noon the rain clouds parted to to reveal a bit of sunshine. So, this afternoon we were able to return to the sea for the first time since Saturday. There was a fairly large sea swell, but this made for some great surfing for the dolphins. The two species we saw on this afternoon's trips were the striped dolphins and bottlenose dolphins.
Tomorrow the sea and wind are expected to settle down even more, but the forecast is not looking good again for the following few days. We just have to work with what we have, and make the most of it when the weather allows us to.
