Dolphins and a vist to Vila Franca Islet

This morning we went out on a tour on the ocean, after a period of being confined to land due to strong winds. It was nice to be out on the boat again, enjoying the ocean breeze and the view of the south coast of São Miguel island. During our tour we encountered several different groups of common dolphins, our most encountered species here in the Azores. Some people aboard were also lucky to see a turtle with the first group of dolphins that we were with. To finish off this tour we went along Vila Franca Islet too see some of the bird life that nests on this extinct crater in the ocean.

Some photos of the common dolphins:
