Sperm whales today!

At this time of the year we often see more baleen whales than sperm whales, but they are always around and this morning we spotted them. They were feeding and showed us two tails! During the morning tour we also found a pod of common dolphins quite active. In the afternoon we sighted a shy group of Risso's dolphins, the third resident species in the day, but it was quick because our lookout had something else to see ... fin whales!

Photos from today:
