Diving together

Today in the morning we saw two sperm whales diving together right next to our catamaran, into the deep Atlantic Ocean, into the dark abyss. We got to see their majestic tails high out of the water but they left a calf at the surface behind them. This little calf stayed a little bit with us but slowly swam away, maybe waiting for another adult to come up to the surface. We also encountered two different groups of bottlenose dolphins, one more playful and curious then the other.
