Pilot whales becoming frequent sightings

Hi all!

This morning we went quite far out to find a large pod of Short Finned Pilot whales. There were estimated to be at least 50 individuals in this pod, including some large males with a very prominent and bulky dorsal fin, females and some calves. There were almost stationary, so calm as they usually are.

Then we found a small group of Atlantic spotted dolphins that eventually travelled a bit with us, as we speeded up our boat. We went on the way to something bigger…

Foraging dive of a sperm whale (Physeter macrocephalus

At least 5 Sperm whales were waiting for us! 2 calves and several females were blowing all over the place. The calves even took a deep dive, showing their small flukes in the air. Join us for more of these fun and educational moments in nature!
