A day of dolphins and rainbows

Today has been a good day for dolphin swimming and watching here in the Azores. Within minutes of leaving the marina this morning we came across our first group of dolphins, and from then on we saw several more groups throughout the day. Although we did not see any whales today ,we saw 3 different dolphin species: Risso's dolphins, bottlenose dolphins, and common dolphins. We encountered brief patches of rain, but this created some very beautiful rainbows to brighten up our encounters. It was a very memorable experience, watching and swimming with dolphins beneath a rainbow:
