Today the sun was shiny and the sky was blue, almost seemed like a summer day! So of we went to the sea and see what was waiting for us. In a few minutes we spot a group of dolphins and for a surprise they were striped dolphin jumping, very acrobatic. Because we couldn’t take pictures of these dolphins today, this one it’s from another tour.

Then we had news of a whale a bit further and so we went. When we arrive there we saw a little Fin Whale and another one bigger, probably the mother. We stayed only for a bit, because they were shallow diving and hard to see, therefore we sayed goodbye. Our lookout saw a Sperm Whale and when we get there they were four of them. We saw the fluke of one of them, and the others were in shallow dives too. Enjoy the pictures of the Sperm Whales from today!
