Hello everyone!

We started the day with an amazing group of Sperm Whales (Physeter macrocephalus), all females and calves. Very close to the Sperm Whales we had also Short-finned Pilot Whales (Globicephala macrorhynchus) and this time the whole group was there, females with their babies, juveniles and the males with their large fin. Together with the Pilot whales, we also had a few Bottlenose Dolphins (Tursiops truncatus), including a juvenile that was playing with the Pilot whales.

Then we head out to see the Atlantic Spotted Dolphins (Stenella frontalis), very curious about the boat, always around until they found something more interesting…fish! They became even more active than they were before.
