This morning we had the very pleasant company of a group of about 5 to 6 Bottlenose Dolphins socializing near our boat, putting big smile on our faces.

All of a sudden our lookout Filipe says on the VHF Radio that he is spotting Pilot Whales! And off we go of course!

We sighted a group of about 10 Pilot Whales travelling fast. So it was a bit difficult to get good pictures! But we got a few! 🙂
