Calm whales, calm dolphins, calm sea

October starts with a sea like a mirror, we could see far across the sea and easily spot the sperm whales. We encountered a shy group that didn't let us get close, but the animals are in charge so we kept more distance and they slowly accepted us. Luckily the sea was calm so we could see them well even if we were further then normal from them. A good reminder that whales are sensitive animals, intelligent animals that we need to respect to get closer to. The common dolphins were, as usual, very playful and curious. Swimming right next to our boats, looking up at us.
