Mr Liable again

During the last few weeks we have had many encounters with our most well known sperm whale here off São Miguel Island - a large male who we call "Mr Liable". He is always really great to watch as most of the time he is very predictable in his dive times, he spends a lot of time at the surface and almost always he shows us a great tail. Today was no exception. As usual, we also encountered many dolphins throughout the day. We were with our three most encountered species for this time of the year - Atlantic spotted dolphins, common dolphins and bottlenose dolphins. At this time of the year we also encounter a lot of loggerhead turtles at the surface, such as the one below that we photographed today:
