Our captains found the whales

Today we had bad visibility and our lookouts could not see very far out. The lookouts did find us both common dolphins and bottlenose dolphins in the morning and afternoon, but they could not see any whales. We tried anyway to search further out. Then one of our skippers, Rui, found the sperm whales towards the west in the morning. We encountered several individuals and they seem to be a new family group. In the afternoon we tried the same area but one of our boats search further east and YES the skipper, Hildeberto, found them. Before the other boats arrived they witnessed a sperm whale breaching several times and also lobtail. So, today we can thank our captains for their great work and experience. 

We also had an amazing time swimming with dolphins and our clients shared their awesome photos with us, swimming with bottlenose dolphins and a loggerhead turtle
