Jump, jump, jump!

This morning was full of active dolphins, we saw three different species and they were all jumping today. The bottlenose dolphins closer to shore gave us some impressive high jumps and beautiful smiles. Later on and further out we encountered a large group of about 150 to 200 common dolphins feeding. We could early see the Cory's shearwaters fly around above the dolphins. As it was a bit wavy the dolphins were jumping a lot in the waves. In all this feeding frenzy one part of the dolphin group took of, running and jumping - there were some striped dolphins in all of this. And striped dolphins normally jump a lot. It was a morning of action.
