Dolphins in a choppy sea

Today we had a bit more wind, meaning the ocean was choppy. But luckily for us we had dolphins to see close to shore, and dolphins love waves to surf and play in. We encountered two of our resident species: bottlenose dolphins and common dolphins. The bottlenose dolphins were diving occasionally, but every time they came up they were close to our boats and they were surfacing high so we could see their smiling faces well as they looked back at us. The common dolphins were more active, possibly chasing some fish at the surface as we saw plenty of seabirds diving around them. Photography was not easy today, but the dolphins sure left a memory for today's passengers to take home with them.
