Three species of dolphins today

Today was a great dolphin day for us!
In the moring we encountered (and swam with) our resident bottlenose dolphins and common dolphins. The group of bottlenose dolphins was very large and included several young calves. In the afternoon we encountered a large group of striped dolphins, also with a lot of calves, and common dolphins. The sea was a bit mixed up today but it created perfect surfing conditions for the playful dolphins. Here are a few of our photos from today:
