Hello everyone! Today we had a very hot day at the sea.

The first species was the Sperm Whale. We had at leat 3 or 4 juveniles/calves, probably the mothers were foraging. They seemed to be socializing because they were very close to each other macking body contact. It was really nice to see that. A few minutes later 2 of them dived and we changed for another species.

On our way to the Risso’s Dolphins we found 3 Common Dolphins. They were very active, bow riding with the boat so we stayed a bit with them, after a while, we could see a bigger group approaching the boat and they mixed with the others.

Finally we went to the Risso’s Dolphins. The group was actually nice, they were around 25 individuals. They stayed with us the whole time and we could enjoy the moments with them.


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