This morning we were greeted by 3 different dolphin species, starting just a few minutes into the tour outside Ponta Delgada harbour. The first appearance was a small group of common dolphins, followed by an even smaller group of striped dolphins. These ones were not interested in us, so we left them to their business and found more dolphins further west. We ended up having some nice encounters with more common dolphins and bottlenose dolphins. We also spotted 3 loggerhead turtles, a Portuguese man-o-war and plenty of seabirds.
