Spot the odd one out

This morning´s tour was highlighted with three dolphin species; Atlantic spotted dolphin, common dolphin and bottlenose dolphin. Both the bottlenose and common dolphin are resident to the islands of the Azores, unlike the Atlantic spotted dolphin that migrates to these waters in the early summer to take advantage of a rich food supply in the form of sardines and mackerel. These dolphins normally stay until the winter months, when the water becomes cooler they travel further south to the western coast of Africa. In the afternoon our clients were able to enjoy swimming with the resident common dolphins of the Azores. Unfortunately today our crew didn't return from the sea with any photos for us to share, but the most important thing is that our clients all took away their own photos and memories from their tour.
