Family day!

Today we had a family day!

The sea conditions today were really nice and allowed us to enjoy the company of different animals. During our tours we were lucky to see different families of cetaceans. We saw different family groups of dolphins from both species, common dolphins and bottlenose dolphins

The encounter with the  sperm whales was really special, we had a family of at least 8 individuals including a newborn calf and a juvenile. They were really active at the surface, doing spyhopping, showing parts of the tail, rolling around and upside down... what a show! one of our boats was lucky enough to see a baby close to the boat... newborns are especially curious!
