Curious baby sperm whale

Today we saw several sperm whales, but the same group both in the morning and in the afternoon. Our boats saw lots of them around, and some jumping whales as well. But the highlight was the little baby in the family. In the morning the baby was a bit more shy but still wondefully cute next to the adults. In the afternoon, maybe with a belly full of milk, it all of a sudden jumped next to our catamaran and then it came right up to us to check us out. It swam under our bow almost like a dolphin. Amazing to see the intelligens of these animals and looking someone so small in the eyes and see a soul. Of course we also saw dolphins during the day, pilot whales, common dolphins, spotted dolphins and bottlenose dolphins.
