Today was a hot day! but no hot day can stop our brave whale watchers of getting up early and enjoy the sea. The day started with a lovely travelling group of Bottlenose dolphins. Seeing animals travelling is always such a nice opportunity to understand how much the animals can travel compared to being in a small enclosure. We got a call of our Vigia (lookout) giving us the area of after 50 minutes a sperm whale would appear. The wait started and only after 10 minutes we were lucky enough to enjoy the relax male swimming at the surface. The big male, decided then dive and in doing so the spectacle always puts a smile on everyone’s face.
We knew it was time to go, we then came across the common dolphins who made us laugh and sigh with the words “Awwwww” . So as usual an emotional day in Villa Franca do Campo!
