Everything ok? Here it’s all good, we started our morning with a group of 5 Sperm Whales (Physeter macrocephalus).
The group was calm at the surface and after a few minutes one of them decided to dive and 5 minutes later the other 4 followed. The time with the Sperm Whales was ending when all of a sudden 2 Beaked Whales (Ziphiidae) appeared next to the Sperm Whales. We could see them really well, even the rostrum, so we think that they might have been Sowerby’s Beaked Whales (Mesoplodon bidens). We saw them 3 or 4 times and then they dove.
Next stop was with Bottlenose Dolphins (Tursiops truncatus). They were socializing with each other, we could hear lots of vocalizations and see a lot of body contact as well. They didn’t approach the boat too much but they weren’t avoiding us either, so it was nice!
I hope you had enjoyed, see you at Terra Azul!
