Male sperm whales and plenty of dolphins

Today was another whale day in São Miguel. We had two different large male sperm whales around today, one unknown individual in the morning and the very well known "Mr Liable" in the afternoon. The one from the morning was alone and was coming and going to the surface, whereas Mr Liable was accompanied by a smaller adult and he showed us what he is most famous for - showing us his fantastic tail! We also enjoyed the company of plenty of dolphins today. We had a lot of Atlantic spotted dolphins with their newborn babies around and we also encountered two different groups of bottlenose dolphins. We even got to see a lot of high jumps from the bottlenose dolphins. What a day!
