Today the sun accompanied us the whole day despite a threat of grey clouds in the morning 🙂

So we headed out as soon as possible to the ocean to observe the marine wildlife! Soon we were able to observe a group of Common dolphins near to the boat. It turned out, that they were very spread out and we saw some females with their calves near to the coast. On the horizon was a big movement of birds visible, so we drove over there to watch the feeding of birds and dolphins. It appeared to be some Common dolphins together with Atlantic spotted dolphins… it is now the third day in a row, that we see those species joining together to feed on school of fishes 🙂

The juveniles of the Atlantic spotted dolphins were very curious, so they were surrounding our boat with acrobatic movements and spectacular jumps 🙂 It’s always a bless to be able to observe the life in the ocean!

Also the Sperm whales showed up! All of them appeared individually and presented their flukes before taking a deep dive. As the wind was calm, we could see the very typical blow of them. It goes more to the front and only on the left side, as the blowhole of the sperm whales sits also only on the left side.
