4 species of dolphins today

Today was a dolphin day! In the morning we were able to spot 3 different species. First, a big group of atlantic spotted dolphins, very energetic, always jumping and playing on the waves (that were big!). Then we moved for a smaller group of bottlenose dolphins and to finish, we travelled a bit more to see a very small group of Risso's dolphin, only about 6 of them and very, very shy.

In the afternoon, we thought we wouldn't find any species, but surprise, surprise... our zodiac boat spotted two different species together: bottlenose dolphins and pilot whales!
