Another blue whale, sperm whales and bottenose dolphins

We are continuing to be amazed by the number of blue whales we have been sighting this season, with another individual (a different one to the individual we saw yesterday) sighted on our tour this morning. The whale was diving a lot and spending very little time at the surface, but after some patience we got to see the whale on several surfacings. We also sighted a group of around 30 bottlenose dolphins close to Ponta Delgada and two sperm whales a little further offshore. Here are some photos taken from aboard our catamaran this morning:
