Sperm whales, fin whales, bottlenose dolphins...and a turtle!

Today there were sperm whales everywhere in the morning and we were able to track many of them! As we were heading towards the whale area we saw a small sperm whale breaching (leaping out of the water). We tried to get there before it stopped, but unfortunately it was already calm! Fin whales were also sighted in the morning, and even a small loggerhead turtle (Caretta caretta).

In the afternoon we saw bottlenose dolphins and we tried to find the sperm whales. The whales gave us a hard time and only some people were able to see a fluke turning as we approached! We waited for a whale to return to the surface, and we waited...all in vain. Tomorrow the forecast is a little bit better and we will be there to try once again!
