Today we had our first tour this year and we celebrated 2013 with one of our resident dolphin species: common dolphins all around the boat. Despite big swell and some wind we had a great time with several groups of dolphins bowriding and jumping. One of the groups of dolphins we encountered seemed to be feeding and our skipper saw a spearfish jump out of the water, indicating several species hunting in the same area. When we were about to leave the dolphins they followed us for a while. And on our way back we were travelling close to the coastline, and we made a stop at Vila Franca Islet to have a look at its beauty (watch video below).
