Jumping dolphins and sperm whales

Today we could finally return to the sea after 5 days cancellations due to strong winds and rough seas. We ended up having a great tour in the morning with really nice conditions. We also had great sightings of common dolphins, bottlenose dolphins and sperm whales. The dolphins were putting on a great show so we got to see some really high jumps and many dolphins swimming all around our boats. The whales were a bit more tricky as they were being very shy, but after some patience we got to see several individuals including one very well.
