The spotted dolphins are back




The Atlantic spotted dolphins have returned to us for another summer! We had already seen them twice earlier this month, but this morning was the first time this year that we encountered a really large group of more than 60 spotted dolphins. During this morning's tour we also sighted a large and curious group of bottlenose dolphins. We had dolphins everywhere, including many small babies of both species.
