A nice day with sperm whales and dolphins

Today our morning tour was fantastic! We encountered sperm whales which appeared to be fearless and very kind. We had the opportunity to see the tails of two different individuals, both times really close to our boats! After this encounter we saw a large group of bottlenose dolphins, another one of our resident species. They were socialising and approaching our boat, allowing us to get really good pictures and films. In the afternoon it was more difficult to find the animals. We found the dolphins again, but this time they were not so interested in us. First we saw common dolphins and then we encountered the group of bottlenose dolphins that were also seen in the morning. It was a wonderful sunny afternoon so the good weather helped everybody to enjoy their time at sea.
