Dolphin surf

Today we had a fun and wild morning on the sea. We started with only a few common dolphins and they soon disappeared. We continued slowly and suddenly we had a group of about 100 common dolphins, with lots of newborns playing around in the waves. We spend some time with them and got to see some wonderful jumps as well. Later on we encountered a small group of bottlenose dolphins but on the way back, just outside the marina we encountered a second and larger group that were feeding on fish under our boat. We also visited Vila Franca Islet and got to see a loggerhead turtle
