Hello everyone!

Today at sea nature was just amazing to us. The morning started with a beautiful pink and blue color on the sky, promising a beautiful day!

First encounter was with a small group of Common Dolphins (Delphinus delphis), and although they were resting, we could still see the beautiful colors on their bodies.

Then our lookout spot a Sperm Whale (Physeter macrocephalus), the FIRST of 2021! So off we went to see it, when we arrived we put the hydrophone on the water to listen any clicks as the whale was on a dive. Oh how i missed this sound! Minutes later we could see it at the surface, just beautiful!

 

 

To end up on a high note, we had Pilot whales (Globicephala macrorhynchus), with some babies at the mix! It was indeed a refreshing morning with a dash of Spring!

On our Tuesday tour we had the amazing company from de the Common Dolphins (Delphinus delphis) and the Sperm Whale ( Physeter macrocephalus) again!

Let’s cross our fingers so we can see more of these species on the next tours!

 

See you next time!
