5 dolphins species in just one tour!!

On this morning's tour we were lucy again, with 5 different dolphin species sighted: common dolphin, striped dolphin, pilot whale (belongs to the dolphin family), bottlenose dolphin and Risso's dolphin. We were coming across different groups of animals one after the other and all the groups included young juveniles and calves. Our swimmers also had a very nice tour swimming with a group of common dolphins, and they even reported seeing some mating as well as a calf suckling milk beneath the surface! Now we are waiting for our afternoon whale watchers and swimmers to return and hopefully they had just as much luck as we did in the morning.
