Today we were back out on the water after the storm that has just passed by the Azores.
The swell calmed down during the morning and although it rained during the afternoon we could still enjoy dolphins during both tours.
In the morning we encountered common dolphins close to shore, followed by bottlenose dolphins further out. From our catamaran we also came across two Risso's dolphins, although they weren't as interested in us as the other two species.

In the afternoon we just encountered common dolphins, but we had a really nice group of about 50 individuals that were staying close to our boat in a nice tight pod.
We all enjoyed seeing them, especially the young baby dolphins that were present in large numbers.
