A grey day in the company of marine wildlife

Looks like the animals are not bothered by the weather!
In the morning we started with a national geographic moment, common dolphins and striped dolphins in a very big group all feeding alongside with a lot of seabirds... Breakfast time!

After we went really far away, we could see Santa Maria island perfectly, and we were with some sperm whales, the biggest predator in the world and also the animal with the biggest brain in the world (the size of a basketball). We ended this tour with some bottlenose dolphins.

In the afternoon a big group of common dolphins very close to Ponta Delgada, surfing the waves and playing with the boats. The bottlenose dolphins were again the last species of the tour.
