Incredible sperm whales

Today, once again, we had Elsemiek's family (sperm whale) around. In the morning they gave us wonderful flukes as they were feeding. In the afternoon, with bellies full, they were in social and curious mode. We had an incredible encounter with five of them, and a sixth one breaching further away. They were rolling around, lobtailing, spyhopping next to our catamaran Cetus. It was a magical time with them and sperm whales will never stop surprising you. During the day we also saw common dolphins and bottlenose dolphins.
