3 dolphin species

Today was a dolphin day, with three different species, all of them residents. During the morning tour we enjoyed the company of common dolphins and striped dolphins. In the afternoon the common dolphins appeared again and this species made for some great dolphin swimming today. We also saw a group of about 10 Risso's dolphins in the afternoon. It was a calm group of mostly adults, but we also saw two juveniles in the group who were easy to recognise because as well as being smaller they are totally grey. The adults are very white from being covered in scratches. Check out the photos:
