Spotted dolphins and birds

Today was a cold and clear day with a nice trip out on the ocean and we had a great encounter with a group of Atlantic spotted dolphins. Our lookout couldn't see anything else today, thou we had Risso's dolphins somewhere out there too, but we could not find them, so we took the opportunity to go around Vila Franca Islet to see the beauty of the islet and the birds there. We also had one boat out there swimming with the spotted dolphins. Some photos from today:
