Dolphins and a turtle in rain

Today was a dolphin day. Both whale watchers and Full Day whale watchers left the marina this morning to go out on a sea that was a little bit rough. But we encounter large and playful groups of both common dolphins and bottlenose dolphins. With the bottlenose dolphin we got to see some tailslapping and mating behaviour and a few smaller full body jumps. The group of common dolphins was majority made out of new born babies jumping high and crazy out of the water. It was a really good show. And one of our boats also got to see a loggerhead turtle. So it was a really good morning despite some rain and a grey sky.
