Mr Liable in a rough sea

Today we had whale watching tours both in the morning and in the afternoon. The sea was a bit rough. During the morning we had nice sightings of a huge pod of Atlantic spotted dolphins and some common dolphins and we saw a big sperm whale male (Mr. Liable). The afternoon tour started with a group bottlenose dolphins jumping and bowriding and after a while we tried to re-sighted Mr. Liable. Unfortunately, it was foggy and our vigia (onshore lookout) had poor visibility so after much searching we gave up on the sperm whale, to go to an area with common dolphins instead. In the end of the afternoon trip we saw, once again, the bottlenose dolphins.
