More species interaction this morning with a sperm whale calf playing with a group of bottlenose dolphins! The calf was alone with the dolphins for a while before being joined by three adult sperm whales who watched from the sidelines. It wasn't long before an adult female we assume was the calf's mother joined in the fun. The whales were rolling around at the surface while the dolphins swam and jumped alongside them - really interesting to watch the socialising between the species.

Other species viewed on our whalewatching excursions today included Atlantic spotted dolphins and common dolphins, which were the animals our dolphin swimming groups spent their trips with.
