First encounter in March

Yesterday was too rough to go to sea, but this morning it had calmed down enough for us to take two boats out for the first tour of March. This time of year is usually a bit difficult for sightings, nonetheless we were lucky to encounter two groups of common dolphins. We saw various behaviours from these dolphins, and they showed enough interest in the boats for us to get a good look. As the month progresses we are waiting in anticipation for the return of the baleen whales that pass through the waters of the Azores during the spring months. Hopefully we don´t have to wait much longer.
