Brilliant weather to be out at sea!

Hello dear people!

Let me start with a picture from the very beginning:

The supercalm sea this morning

We were honestly so lucky with the weather: calm, not too hot and on top of it a very clear waters that allowed us to see the dolphins several meters down! Because the spotted dolphins were the first species that we saw. The group seemed to be resting together with the Cory’s Shearwaters but when we arrived the whole pod came towards us – like they were welcoming us! They were so freindly and close that I managed to make the underwater picture you can see on top of this blogpost 🙂

We left them way earlier than usual though – our lookout Filipe called us to say that he spotted a sperm whale! Searching the animal became quite tricky – the whale decided to dive many shallow dives, with just a few breaths in between. So it became quite difficult to come closer. But at a certain time we managed – we could not see the whale resting at the surface, but were lucky to see its majestic fluke. But we also saw that other boats just arrived and so we decided to return to our dolphins. There we saw many jumps with one young individual that breached right next to us. Fun times with these social animals!

I hope you all loved it aswell!! Im happy I was your guide 🙂
