Today we went out on the ocean in the morning to encounter a beautiful group of common dolphins. At first they were feeding and we could see them very quickly chasing fish and leaping out of the water to go after them. After a while the dolphins calmed down and swam over to our boat to check us out. The ocean was really calm and clear, just like a summer day. This made for perfect views as the dolphins gracefully glided around in front of our boat. Several times we could see that they were watching us as much as we were watching them, as they turned on their sides to make eye contact. After our dolphin encounter our coastal lookout guided us to an area of some beaked whales. We got to have a very blief glimpse of them once but they never reappeared. Nevertheless, the common dolphins as well as the numerous rainbows throughout the morning made for a perfect tour!
