May begins with sperm whales

Today our resident sperm whales decided to make their return to the area after we had not seen them for a while. Throughout the day we encountered several sperm whales, most of which seemed to be calves. In the morning the lookout also saw one blue whale and two sei whales, but we chose the nearest species; the sperm whales, the common dolphinsRisso's dolphins and bottlenose dolphins. To complete the day we also saw some marine turtles!

Right before diving, the Sperm whales show us the entire dorsal part of the body, so that they can dive vertically in to the deep waters where the big squids are
