Observing and swimming with common dolphins with Futurismo

This morning we had a tour on our catamaran "Cetus" as well as a dolphin swimming trip on one of our zodiac boats. It was a beautiful clear blue day with plenty of sunshine and dolphins. We encountered several groups of common dolphins, all of them not too far from Ponta Delgada. There were a lot of young dolphins around, some were evern newborns. As usual the dolphins were keen to bowride and the swimmers were able to see them well underwater. We also spotted different seabirds (skuas, terns, yellow-legged gulls and black-backed gulls). The following photos were taken today by our crew:
