Finally some good weather and great observations

Bottlenose dolphins

Sperm whale diving

Today's encounters were with sperm whales and as always with our resident friends the dolphins (common dolphins and bottlenose dolphins). Since the 6th of May the weather has improved a little bit and allowed us to have some nice encounters. Almost every day we have been with the same family of sperm whales (easily recongisable by their white body marks) south of Água de Pau/Ponta Garça and not far from land. The bottlenose dolphins seem to have taken up a summer residence in the area of Caloura, giving us guaranteed sightings with this species every day. The common dolphins are a little bit far away at the moment, but all the time available to have fun with our boats. We have not seen any baleen whales recently. What a shame!
