Sperm whaletopia

Sperm whales breaching, logging, diving and mating is just a few of the behaviours we saw today. We had a large group of sperm whales, males and females, that we had nice encounters with both in the morning and afternoon. We also saw bottlenose dolphins and a group of common dolphins with about 400 individuals.  Our swimmers also saw striped dolphins and spotted dolphins. Another amazing day here in the Azores.
