chill out area

Hello, hello my dear whale watchers…

Going out for the afternoon tour, we found a group of sperm whales relatively far out.  We could detect them from some distance, as their bodies where reflecting the sun as mirrors.

Arriving there, we found a group of first 4, after while 6 and finally even 10 individuals. At the beginning they were literally just chilling at the surface taking a sunbath. Maybe they were hoping for a nice tan as we do!? Hahaha…

It was really nice to observe them, with the engines completely turned off and listening to their blows…

After a while the group started travelling slowly. However, they remained on the surface with slow movements barely under the surface.

What a nice sighting!

Thanks for having us around in your chill out area! 😀
