Common dolphins taking over the coast!

After a so many days of great weather we headed out this morning with a cloudier sky. However we soon joined a group of hundreds of Common dolphins!!

Everywhere we looked we could see Cory’s Shearwaters flying around in circles and feeding, and under them… dolphins!! The dolphins were separated in groups and spread out for miles.

They were nice enough to take a break from their breakfast to come say hi and play with the boat.

Because it was a bit wavy, we weren’t able to take photos so the ones here are from a couple days ago when the dolphins and shearwaters were exhibiting a similar behaviour.

At the same time, in the Swimming with Dolphins tour, they were soon surrounded by the Common dolphins that kept spinning around under water showing their beautiful colors. Everybody could hear their whistles and see them 🙂

Stay tuned for more exciting adventures of Terra Azul!
