False killer whales, sperm whales and dolphins

The last 3 days have been full of good surprises for us. First a group of false killer whales appeared, apparently from nowhere. We watched them for a while, travelling with them at an amazing speed of 16 knots. Unbelievable  The rest of the time was with our more regular species: sperm whales, common dolphins, bottlenose dolphins and Atlantic spotted dolphins in a huge group that seemed to be made up of more babies than mothers. Most of the time the sun was out, making everything more colourful and warm.
