A wild dolphin show

Today we had some amazing shows from dolphins in the wild - the best place to see these animals. During the morning tour it was relatively easy to find the animals. We came across common dolphins, bottlenose dolphins and Atlantic spotted dolphins, one species after the other. In the afternoon we had to search for much longer before we encountered bottlenose dolphins. Nevertheless, it was an amazing encounter with the resident group of bottlenose dolphins, the group that we refer to as "Bubblemaker's group". We got to see some nice high jumps from these dolphins and they were very close to the coastline near Ponta Delgada. On the way back we enjoyed coastal views of São Miguel island on this nice sunny day.
