Hello everyone!

Today we went to see some wild life! The sea was with some swell but off we went to the west side.

When we arrived we had a group of Sperm Whales (Physeter macrocephalus), some of them were shallow diving and others were at the surface resting for the next deep dive.

Then, really close to the Sperm Whales, we had a group of Pilot Whales (Globicephala spp). Not a big group though, around 20 individuals. On our way home we also found a big group of Atlantic Spotted Dolphins (Stenella frontalis) socializing!

I hope you had enjoyed, see you at Terra Azul!
