Hello everyone! Today we were all day at sea (with a luch break, of course).

The star of the morning was the Fin Whale but it was not alone! It was a mother and a calf. It is very nice to be able to see some Baleen Whales at this time of the year, in a few days they will be all on their way to the feeding grounds.

In both morning and afternoon we saw Sperm Whales, Common Dolphins and the Atlantic Spotted Dolphins. In the morning the Sperm Whale that we saw was sleeping! At the beginning we thought that it was spyhopping but then we figured that it was sleeping. The Common and the Spotted Dolphins were very active and curious about the boat.

In the afternoon we also saw a group of Striped Dolphins. This time they were not so fast as usual, so we could them very well. Also very typical of this season, all dolphins species had calves and juveniles.

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