Six species today

In the morning we started with fin whales and later on lots of striped dolphins, but we ended up with sperm whales. We got flukes and blows everywhere. And on the way back we had a mixed group of common and bottlenose dolphins. In the afternoon we resighted the fin whales. They were calm, swimming close to us and one of them showed us what whale poop looks like (see photo). After the whales we sighted our friends Egípcio and Submarino, two bottlenose dolphins belonging to a large groups of about 80-90 dolphins. Later on we had a rare encounter with a female beaked whale with her baby. So amazing. And we had common dolphins all around. What a day!
