More great whale and dolphin sightings

Viewing some Atlantic spotted dolphins

Today we had another very good day on the water, with many great sightings. During our morning tour we saw sperm whales, pilot whales, and Atlantic spotted dolphins. In the afternoon we saw the sperm whales and pilot whales again, and a group of bottlenose dolphins. Our dolphin sightings today were particularly good. Our spotted dolphin encounter included a lot of very young calves that were leaping high out of the water as the pod travelled at speed. The bottlenose dolphins that we saw were very concentrated in a tight group, giving us an excellent look.
