Baby day

Today was a day of babies. In the morning we delayed our tour a little bit due to the visibility not being the best but soon we took of. We encountered a small group of common dolphins with a new born baby. Later we went to search for other species of cetaceans and our captain of the catamaran spotted sperm whales. We started with two adults and a new born calf in the middle, and soon we got a double fluke. And then more family members. In the afternoon we were lucky to resight the sperm whales as it still was a bit misty and hazy out there on the ocean. We got to see another baby sperm whale in the end with an adult female. In the end we encountered bottlenose dolphins, "Broken Jaw"s family and she had a new born baby with her.
