Whales and dolphins!

We continue having many different encounters and totally different trips in morning and afternoon! Today in the morning from our small boats we were lucky to see some young sperm whales, and later  from our catamaran a calf and 2 adults. We also saw three different species of dolphins: our summer visitors, the Atlantic spotted dolphins, very playful and curious as always and our resident common and bottlenose dolphinsIn the afternoon, in addition to the dolphins, we were lucky to see a very curious fin whale that checked our different boats!
