Sperm whales and over 500 dolphins around

A morning full of Atlantic spotted dolphins and bottlenose dolphins, a group of 500 common dolphins surrounded all our boats and gave us an unforgettable memory for life. And in the afternoon the sperm whales showed themselves to us.

And we had an afternoon also swimming with a massive group of common dolphins, about 100 around the boat and a few hundreds more around. And lots and lots of babies, one of our swimmers was at one point surrounded by six calves with there mothers close by.

Photos from the morning:
