Bottlenose dolphins and sperm whales

The day started with 2 boats going whale watching (zodiac and medium-sized boat). The weather was cloudy, but the sea was perfect. At the beginning of the trip we spotted a large group of bottlenose dolphins, jumping, bowriding  and mating in front of the boat.
We received information that one of our boats spotted a sperm whale. We went there and watched them for some minutes until they went to deep dive after showing the fluke (tail). On the way back we passed close to the shore and we spent a few minutes at Vila Franca Island (Natural reserve) where we observed some sally lightfoot crabs. Photos from today:
