Dolphins and a shark

Today we have been surrounded by dolphins, large groups of Atlantic spotted dolphins and common dolphins mixed together, feeding with Cory's shearwaters, and bottlenose dolphins mixed with spotted dolphins. We also saw a hammerhead shark swimming around our catamaran "Cetus" and our zodiac "Alfredo baleeiro". It was an exciting encounter, watching this majestic animal circle around us. In the afternoon we resighted the three dolphin species but no sharks.

Photos of the dolphins today:
