Good evening,

today in our afternoon tour the first species we saw was a group of Bottlenose dolphins quite close to the coast. It was a small group of about 5 adult animals, which were travelling.

After a while we left these animals and went a bit further out. There we saw 4 more individuals of Bottlenose dolphins, 3 adults and one calve. They might have been part of the group we saw before.

Our next stop was off the coast of Ponta Delgada. There was a big group of Common dolphins, they were very active at the surface and came close to our boat. Some of them were moving quickliy, probably hunting for fish.

It was a nice tour, see you soon 🙂
