Hello everyone!

Today the morning started grey but during the lunch time the sun came out for the afternoon.
We started the morning with a group of Common Dolphin (Delphinus delphis) mixed with…can you guess? Striped Dolphins (Stenella coeruleoalba) again! These two have been mixing a lot lately, which is nice for us because when they are together, the Striped Dolphins get closer to the boat and we can see the details on the body 🙂 .

In the afternoon, we saw again the Striped and Common Dolphins together plus a little surprise… We also saw Pilot Whales on a different location. They were traveling in a very calm way which gave us time to take some pictures and appreciate!

I hope you had enjoyed, see you at Terra Azul!
