Common dolphins and a calm sea!

What a nice morning conditions! Sunny day at calm sea.. This morning we went for whale watching trip in a zodiac. After leaving the harbour, the lookout spotted some dolphins but they were moving fast and he was not able to spot them anymore. Still we moved to the area were he saw for the last time the dolphins but.. no signal of them! Time to use the hydrophone! After listening several times, it was possible to ear some whistles. We decided then to move the same direction the sound came from but no lucky as well.. Suddenly our lookout saw some dorsals fins and when we approached them they received us quite well! A small group of common dolphins spread out and moving fast. After a small period with them they became calm and was a nice sighting. No doubt it was such a wonderful morning before Christmas.
