Pilot whales all day long

Today we had a day of pilot whales, a group of about 30 pilots with lots and lots of babies were around. In the morning we started with common dolphins, then bottlenose dolphins, a great loggerhead turtle and we ended the tour with pilot whales. In the afternoon saw the same species, but in reverse order. We started with the pilot whales, loggerhead turtles, bottlenose dolphin and we finished with common dolphins. The sea was like a mirror and we had sunshine. It was a fantastic day on the sea.
