Dolphin watching and a visit from a whale shark

Today was a beautiful blue day and our tours were full of marine life. In the morning we had large groups of common dolphins and Atlantic spotted dolphins that were feeding together with Cory's shearwaters and great shearwaters. Our swimming in the morning with these dolphins was really great! In the afternoon our boats returned to the sea to encounter more of our resident common dolphins. People that were aboard one of our boats in the afternoon also encountered a large fully grown loggerhead turtle while the people on our other boat had an encounter with a whale shark (the largest fish in the world!).
