3 species of dolphins

Today we had a lot of sea swells on our tours, a huge difference from the perfectly calm seas we have been experiencing recently. However, the waves made a nice playground for the dolphins that we saw on our tours. In the morning we encountered common dolphins and bottlenose dolphins. During our afternoon tour we sighted the same two species as well as Atlantic spotted dolphins
