A lucky strike in the mist

This morning we went whale and dolphin watching in the mist. The low cloud that was hanging over the island made the job of spotting animals more difficult for our lookouts. Nevertheless they did find us some nice common dolphins and a few bottlenose dolphins near the coastline. The whales were further out so it was a lucky strike that we managed to find a sperm whale out there for ourselves. We went out with our catamaran and a zodiac and after not too long waiting we spotted a low blow. It was the characteristic blow of a sperm whale! We watched the adult female at the surface for a while, until it raised its tail high out of the water to start a deep feeding dive. This sperm whale is one that we already know, she is called Marble and we first saw her the 15th of October, 2010. She got her beautiful name from one of our clients. What a lucky strike to be able to find this sperm whale out there in the mist!
