Several groups of Atlantic spotted dolphins and common dolphins accompanied us throughout the day. As they often are, the dolphins were curious, approaching our boats, swimming around us and looking back at us. It was great to see them in the clear blue water that the Azores are well known for during the summer. Our swimming clients also had some wonderfull in water encounters with these dolphins. In the morning from one of our boats a third dolphin species was also spotted, some Risso's dolphins to add to our dolphin day list.
