Eye contact with wild dolphins

Today it felt like summer as we had sunshine and dolphins everywhere. We went from group after group after group of both common dolphins and bottlenose dolphins. The dolphins were playful and we had a calm sea so we could see them clearly through the water as them swam on their sides next to us. Its a beautiful experience to get eye contact with a wild dolphin. We also encountered two loggerhead turtles, a Northern gannet, our skipper spotted a shark fin and in the marina we saw the white gulls from yesterday, that is confirmed Glaucous gulls. Rare to see in the Azores.
