Sperm whales and dolphins

In the morning, the sperm whales were really far away and it took us a while to get to them. We enjoyed the company of a lot of common dolphins before we arrived to the whales but it was worth the trip. When we came to the sperm whales we had 11 individuals at the surface. A group of adult females, juveniles and calves. In the afternoon we had the same luck with sperm whales including a female sperm whale with a calf breaching several times in front of the boat, common dolphins and a surprise visit by spotted dolphins on the way back to the harbour. We never know what to expect out there on the Atlantic ocean, but there is always a nice surprise out there for us. Photos from today:
