These photos taken this morning show a feeding frenzy that involved a large group of common dolphins and many seabirds (Cory´s shearwaters and yellow-legged gulls). It is always great to see this activity, as the dolphins work together to bring large schools of fish together to the surface. Several of the dolphins can be seen jumping, slapping their bodies on the surface to scare the fish underneath. The birds never miss an opportunity to dive down and grab as many fish as they can. It´s always a bonus for our passengers when we are able to see the dolphins and other interesting marine life such as birds.
