Jumping dolphins and whales

Today the dolphins were showing off, specially the bottlenose dolphins as they were leaping alongside our catamaran. The common dolphins did not disappoint either with their grace and beauty. In the afternoon the sperm whales acted like dolphins, we saw a juvenile sperm whale that breached several times for us. In the beginning of the sperm whale encounter we spotted a whale that was a little bit more red then the others, as it turned out to be a Blainville's beaked whale among the sperm whales. We only saw it twice, but still managed to get a photo. On the way inshore we also saw a wonderful group of common dolphins. Today was for sure a true wildlife show, the best way to see these magnificent animals.
