This morning on the Whale Watching tour, we were lucky to sight 4 different species of Dolphins!

The tour started with a very calm and gentle group of Risso’s Dolphins with 2 babies around the boat 🙂

This was followed by a group of Striped Dolphins, then Common Dolphins and to finish a small group of Bottlenose Dolphins merely 300 meters from the coast!

For the Common dolphin sighting we joined our Swimming with Dolphins boat that were having a blast with this group!

They were feeding with a flock of Cory’s shearwaters and a Great shearwater. It was an amazing tour with a friendly group of dolphins so everyone was quite happy by the end 😀
