Spyhopping sperm whales

Today was a sperm whale day, we did encounter dolphins, common dolphins and bottlenose dolphins, both in the morning and afternoon but the sperm whale were the stars stealing the show. A group of 7-9 whales, spyhopping everytime we encountered them. It gives you a certain good feeling when whales are looking back, we are not the only ones aware of the company of the others. In the morning we encountered five whales and later two whale and they joined the five and we had 7 together. It took time to find them in the afternoon but the reward was wonderful as we saw 9 of them.
