Close encounter with a sperm whale

This morning started with a quick stop to see common dolphins before we arrived to a group of sperm whales. We had several encounters but one was more unique then the others. We had a juvenile sperm whale approaching our catamaran and swimming close in front os us before nicely fluking (see video below). On our way back we encountered a group of Atlantic spotted dolphins, and just outside the marina we made another quick stop to see common dolphins feeding together with Cory's shearwaters and yellow-legged seagulls.
