Common Dolphins on the hunt!

During Terra Azul last trip out on the Atlantic Ocean, we could witness heaps of feeding action!

Common Dolphins (Delphinus delphis), Yellow-legged Gulls (Larus michahellis), and even Albacore tunas (Thunnus alalunga) were feasting on huge schools of mackerels (Scombrus spp.). Fish was herded by Common Dolphins nearby our boat and here you can see what it looks like underwater: hard time for mackerels surrounded by tens of hungry dolphins!
