On this second day of the new year we had nice calm sea conditions and we encountered a small group of bottlenose dolphins followed by some groups of common dolphins. The dolphins were very social today and they seemed to enjoy playing around our zodiac boats. We even got to see some smaller juveniles in the group of bottlenose dolphins. It's almost like summer is in the Azores again!
