Sperm whales, pilot whales, Atlantic spotted dolphins and common dolphins on our trips so far today! Seven sperm whales spent a while at the surface together before slipping beneath the surface. Our whalewatching boats saw two calves resurface after a few minutes while the adults remained submerged - it looked like one of the typical female and calf groups we see here on a regular basis.

The rest of the morning was spent with a group of 9 or 10 pilot whales and a very dynamic pod of common dolphins, while our swimming group spent time with Atlantic spotted dolphins.
