Today we encountered different groups of common dolphins close to Ponta Delgada marina where our tours depart from. The common dolphin is the most encountered species in the Azores and is always great to watch as they are very social and playful animals. The common dolphin is also the most beautifully coloured dolphin species in the Azores as they have a yellow colour on their sides. Some of the groups we came across today were very large, one of them about 100 dolphins encountered from our zodiac boat. We got to see a great show as they were all wave surfing and playing around our boats. Although our biologists didn't get photos from today's encounters the most important thing is the memories that we have of them.
