Dolphins everywhere!

Today was another great day out on the ocean in the company of our many dolphin friends. We encountered three different species throughout the day: Atlantic spotted dolphins, common dolphins and bottlenose dolphins. Each encounter was really nice as we observed many different behaviours and we were always with really large groups. At this timeof the year we can see a lot of feeding behaviour, together with many Cory's shearwaters, great shearwaters and terns. We can sense that it's going to be a very productive summer here in the Azores.
