A little bit about yesterday’s tour!
We were joined by guests who had never experienced a whale watching tour before, not knowing what one will find in the ocean is always a thrill.
Wildlife is amazing in every form and shape, whether you can observe the plankton with the naked eye or observing bigger animals -“it is always an exciting moment to find any form of wildlife”, I say.
Our first sighting was of a pod of Common dolphins who concentrated and rode the wave better than the world’s best surfers 😉
But sometimes things are just so magical that it makes it hard to believe what you are seeing. If someone told me that on their first whale watching tour ever they experienced the sightings of 14 Sperm whales I would have to say it sounds hard to believe but that is really what happened. What a Morning !
Sperm whales (Physeter macrocephalus) gather together in pods to socialize, especially female pods since the species is known to have matriarchal societies. The pod that we sighted was the one of adult females and juvenile animals all logging at the surface.
Here are a few pictures for you to enjoy where:
- In the first set we can see the tail moving from one side to the other.
- How the animals looked at the surface interacting with each other
- How it looked when the animals dove into the abyss of the ocean.
Im am happy and excited when sightings like this occur for our guests, reminding all that wildlife whether small or big is astonishing.
See you soon for another amazing day!
