A beautiful day on the ocean with a lot of species

A beautiful day on the ocean today! Especially this afternoon, the sea was calm and glassy, brilliant for observing marine life. We've been watching and swimming with Atlantic spotted dolphins and bottlenose dolphins all day, plus observing Risso's dolphins and a great group of sperm whales in the afternoon. The sperm whales had been too far offshore in the morning to go out to them but our vigias (lookouts) watched them from land all day and finally this afternoon they were close enough to travel out to! It was worth it too, to see the three adults and one juvenile socialising together at the surface and then diving nearly simultaneously so we had the chance for some great tail photos! Here are a few from the day:
