Dolphins, turtle and man-o-wars

After a few day on land we had two tours out today. In the morning we went out with our zodiac boat and saw a big group of common dolphins and in the afternoon we left the harbour with the catamaran and re-sighted the common dolphins (several different groups) playing close to the boat and bowriding, and one group were hunting with some shearwaters. We also encountered a small and shy group of spotted dolphins, a loggerhead turtle and a few Portuguese man-o-wars. Photos from both tours:
