Azores never stops being a constant changing place. It would be wrong to assume that in Azores the weather stays the same depending on the season, since things can change drastically from one minute to another.

This morning the sea conditions where amazing and in a matter of minutes a cloud was coming our way. We spotted the dolphins in the only area where the rainy clouds were not reaching our boat. A pod of Atlantic Spotted dolphins (Stenella frontaliswas curiously cruising alongside our boat. We enjoyed the company so very much.

We were so excited to have two little passengers on board that had never seen dolphins before and the feeling of having passengers on board that see marine mammals for the first time is just so beautiful.

We navigated to the East and then “Puff” sun, no clouds anymore just a sunny breeze, you really have to laugh and enjoy the weather there is no other way to describe it.

While heading  back another species of dolphins was sighted, a pod of Common Dolphins (Delphinus delphis). 

“So beautiful ” -another guest enounced. He is not wrong, Common Dolphins are one of the prettiest dolphin species there are. -(Well they are all pretty cool, but you get my drift)-


So we all very much enjoyed the tour and when back on land, sunny skyes. That is like famous 90’s  Alanis Morissette’s song just “Ironic” 😉
