Today we had dolphins everywhere! Throughout the day we encountered several groups of common dolphins, Atlantic spotted dolphins and bottlenose dolphins. Nothing compares to the excitement of being surrounded by wild dolphins that are very curious towards us humans. Both our swimmers and watchers enjoyed their company and had the treat of seeing several newborn calves in the groups of common dolphins and Atlantic spotted dolphins.
Some photos from today:
