After many days confined on land due to heavy rain and strong winds this morning we were finally able to return to the sea for whale watching. We had two of our boats out on the water, our catamaran "Cetus" and our smaller boat "Song of Whales". During the tour everybody had the chance to see three of our resident species: common dolphins, bottlenose dolphins and sperm whales. The sperm whales were nice to see as the group included many young babies, some of which looked to be newborns. The bottlenose dolphins were also great as they were very active and all travelling together with strong leaps out of the water.
Following are some photos from this morning:
