Ahoi people,

On today’s tour our vigia directed us towards a pod of Common Dolphins (Delphinus delphis)  travelling smoothly in the water.

After that we saw our beloved summer guests, a big group of Atlantic Spotted Dolphins (Stenella frontalis) dynamic and full of curiosity for the boat.

The search for Sperm Whales (Physeter macrocephalus) was a bit more tricky as they were playing hide and seek in shallow waters so that they couldn’t be spotted at the surface nor be heard in the hydrophone. But as they finally surfaced, we were in the area to enjoy this beautiful view.

We are already excited to discover which species will accompany us tomorrow.
