Day with Sperm Whales and Bottlenose Dolphins

Today, both morning and afternoon tours, we sighted a group of about 9 or 10 Sperm Whales. Adults (females with their calves), juveniles and, like mentioned previously calves.

During the morning tour they were quite relaxed, just resting at the surface. In the afternoon they were crazy! Breaching and tail slapping! What a show! No pictures tough… The ocean was too rough! Sorry!

Also at both tours we spotted a group of about 60 to 70 Bottlenose Dolphins. Very active as well, on both tours! Jumping and mating.

Stay tuned for more updates on our tours! 😀
