In the company of cetaceans

In the company of cetaceans is the best way to spend a Monday. We started with bottlenose dolphins surfing the waves close to the shoreline. We recognised them right away as one of them is slowly getting known as "Lady". We don't know if this dolphin is a male or a female, but it just look so "lady-like" and sweet as it always looks back at us. After the bottlenose dolphins we tried a group of Atlantic spotted dolphins but soon we left for a blow. Our lookout spotted whales. It was a bit difficult in the waves and it took some time to find them. But if you don't try you will never see. We ended up with five beautiful sperm whales close to us, and it felt like they were enjoying our company staying around us. Even if they were doing shallow dives we could track their shadows close to us. Always just 50 to 100 m away, probably scanning us all the time with their sonar. A magical moment. And one of our boats also encountered common dolphins.
