Start of August and 3 species of dolphins

Graceful bottlenose dolphins, playful spotted dolphins and adorable common dolphins, but they all seemed to be a bit busy with there own business: eager to find lunch but still we go. The bottlenose dolphins were diving and chasing skipjack tuna. Did you know that bottlenose dolphins can dive as deep as 500 m? We also saw lots Cory's shearwaters and common terns out there, the previous day we have seen a few Bulwer's petrels but not today.
