Daily Snaps.

Seals heading out for a swim.

Heading out to sea.

This seal looks like he’s about to sneeze.

We had the most spectacular encounter with a pod of Common Dolphins.

There were about 300 animals in this stunning pod.

The dolphins were moving at full speed, propelling themselves out the water right next to the boat.

We could even here some whistling from the lower decks.

It’s not all too often that you get images of dolphins with their entire bodies out the water.

These dolphins were riding the swell and seemed to be having an awesome time.

Here you can see just how high these animals jump.

Common Dolphins are among the most beautiful of sea creatures, with yellow on their sides.

We really could not get enough of them.

Towards the end of the sighting, the lighting was beautiful.

Perfectly streamlined, these dolphins will travel hundreds of kilometers in search of food.

Groups like this can number up to about 10 000 animals, and we call these super pods.

One last shot.
