Swimming with dolphins

Today we had a great day in the water with the common dolphins. We recognize this group because one of the members has a flopped dorsal fin. We first saw this individual on Sunday morning in a small group and today he was in a larger group with many calves. The dolphins were very curious and jumping a lot around the boats and bowriding with us. The one with the flopped fin was named Victor by a swedish family who first came whale watching on Sunday and saw him, and then swam with him today.
