A new year of whale watching has begun

Here at Futurismo we operate year-round and in recent days we have been on the sea again for our first whale watching tours of the new year. Despite it being winter we have had some good weather and we have already had 8 tours successful tours this year. During these recent tours we have encountered sperm whales, common dolphins, bottlenose dolphins, Risso's dolphins and Atlantic spotted dolphins. It was a bit of a surprise to see the spotted dolphins in January as this warm water species is usually leaves our waters during the winter months. The Atlantic spotted dolphins were encountered in a very large pod of hundreds of individuals, many with small babies.
