On the zodiacs we also saw common dolphins, spotted dolphins and Bryde's whales during the morning tours.
In the afternoon on the catamaran we found our recently observed mother with her calf, which were the tropical Bryde's whales again, but this time they were not far from the harbour entrance. As we continued our trip we came across Risso's dolphins and a bit later common dolphins. Later we managed to observe five of the big sperm whale males but this time preparing for a deep sea dive. One after the other they "waved goodbye" with their majestic flukes before disappearing in the depths. On our way back we were visited by a pod of Atlantic spotted dolphins. On the zodiacs we sighted bottlenose dolphins which brings the species number up to 6. Topping our average by 4 species!
