A tour full of rainbows, sperm whales, a sei whale, bottlenose dolphins and common dolphins

This morning we had another great tour which was full of rainbows from the start of the tour right through the end, and of course many cetaceans too. During this tour we saw our resident sperm whales (we sighted two adults together with a calf) and we also had a bonus encounter with a sei whale that was passing through the area. We also encountered a small group of bottlenose dolphins and a much larger group of at least 150 common dolphins. Our trip ended perfectly with an amazing view of a double rainbow of which the bottom one was very brightly coloured and seemed to wrap around our boat as we passed through it.
