First of February: lovely start!

Today we enjoyed a fun morning with dolphins friends! We started with a calm, spread out group of common dolphins, that had one individual without the yellow color on the sides. And later we spend time with a large group of bottlenose dolphins, about 70-90 dolphins, all around our b boat, jumping, bowriding, swimming right next to us sticking their heads out of the water and looking at us. We recognized this group,  we know some of the individuals very well from many years back (see photos below). A day like this we don't want to leave the ocean and go back to land, we just want to stay forever out their. The dolphins were racing us as we were leaving, making fantastic jumping close to us, we go a bit splashed by them. Photos from today:
