Today the ocean was a bit choppy, but nevertheless we had some great dolphin encounters. In total we watched 3 different species throughout the morning: common dolphin, bottlenose dolphin and Atlantic spotted dolphin, all of them close to shore. The waves just make watching dolphins all the more fun as they love to leap out of the waves! Aboard our catamaran we also passed by the beautiful islet of Vila Franca. During the morning the conditions picked up, so we couldn't return to the ocean in the afternoon, so were were lucky to get out in the morning.
