Surfing dolphins

Today we have many dolphins in the area. The morning started with several groups of common dolphins very close to Ponta Delgada. One of the groups had a few bottlenose dolphins hidden among the common dolphins. Further to the west we encountered a group of Atlantic spotted dolphins leaping out of the waves. In the afternoon we resighted the common dolphins with the bottlenose dolphins and the two species were feeding together. Photos from today:
