Dolphins of the Azores

Again the dolphins made our tours. In the morning we set out to encounter the different species that our lookout had spotted from shore. Close to the marina there was a small group of bottlenose dolphins as well as common dolphins almost in the same area. The bottlenose dolphins turned out to be 3 familiar individuals from a group we refer to as "Bubblemaker's group". Our swimming clients went between both species as they were so nearby each other. Our whale watching boats set out further to the west where our lookout had found some Atlantic spotted dolphins. We did manage to find some from aboard our catamaran, although a larger group of bottlenose dolphins stole the show. These dolphins were very active, leaping out of the water and really making a splash and memories for our clients.
