Passenger photos from February

Here are some great photos that one of our passengers, Frank Albrecht has kindly shared with us. These pictures were taken on February 26th during our afternoon tour.

By comparing these photos to our catalogue of known individuals we are able to identify which individuals they are. Dolphins can be recognised by the marks on their dorsal fin, and in the case of the second dolphin photographed here, by the unsual shaped jaws. We are always very grateful when passengers share such photos with us, which help contribute to our valuable scientific research of marine species in the Azores. Thank you Frank Albrecht.
