Three species at once

Today in our Bartholomew Diaz expedition – Dolphin Watching from Lisbon we sighted 3 different cetacean species!
The harbour porpoise was the first one, a very shy pair surfaced near the port side of our sailing trimaran. Their small size and near triangular dorsal fin is very characteristic enabling their identification.
After and hour and further south we found a big pod of common dolphins interacting with a pod of striped dolphins. Some 20 individuals joined us bow-riding between our 3 bows, it was magical!
