Sperm whales and dolphins

Today was another warm day that we made the most of by going out on the ocean, both for whale and dolphin watching and also swimming with dolphins in the morning. Our dolphin swimmers enjoyed the company of common dolphins who were particularly curious today and approaching the swimmers close in the water. Our catamaran set out to see a group of sperm whales that our lookout on land had spotted. We had to wait a bit for them to surface, but we were well rewarded as they eventually came up in a group. At one point we counted 6 whales together, plus another 2 a bit further from our boat. There were probably a total of 10 to 15 whales in the area! We also encountered a nice big group of bottlenose dolphins throughout the day. Both in the morning and afternoon they were curious and approached our boat to bowride. It feels like summer is just around the corner.
