Today we had a lovely day with Atlantic Spotted dolphins and Common dolphins 😀

 

 

During the morning, the Spotted dolphins stole the spotlight since the Common dolphins were a bit busy searching for fish. When they are doing that, they spread out and spend long periods of time underwater. Once someone finds food, they call the rest of the group and they came work together to eat everything they need 😀

Just before that we had an amazing encounter with a huge and very relaxed group of Atlantic Spotted dolphins. They came very close to the boat and spend quite a bit of time bow riding!

 

 

In the afternoon we spend our time with a large group of Common Dolphins that were socializing in the big waves. The sea was a bit rough but safe to be out, and we were all taking a saltwater shower 🙂 the dolphins seemed to enjoy the high splashing water while showing some high jumps and surfing in their beloved waves.

Today we also swam with 2 species of dolphins, the Common’s and the Spotted. As they often do, they were feeding again, so their interaction with humans was pretty close.

 

 

Keep tuned for more news of our tours! 😀
