Common dolphins and an ocean sunfish

This morning we had a tour on our catamaran "Cetus". It was a beautiful day on the sea and it didn't take us long to reach a group of common dolphins. It was a large group spread out and there were many baby dolphins in the group. We also tried to look for a baleen whale species that our watchman had spotted further offshore, but unfortunately after some searching we did not find the whale. What we found instead was a large ocean sunfish (Mola mola) on our way back to Ponta Delgada.
Some of our photos from this morning:
