Flat sea, silver light and dolphins

Today we had at least 150 dolphins around us, both common dolphins and bottlenose dolphins. The common dolphins were busy feeding and searching for food, but the bottlenose dolphins were curious, playful and full of energy. We got to play a lot with them, racing us, jumping high and bowriding, and we could hear them well from the boat. In one of the groups we got to see our well-known dolphin friends "Egípcio" and "Submarine". On our way back one of our crew members sighted a loggerhead turtle but it dove and we couldn't find it.

Photos and video from today:
