Bryde's and sperm whales

This morning the Bryde's whale mother and calf pair for the past two weeks joined us again. We got to have a nice look at these two visiting whales, before continuing on to see a large group of several hundred Atlantic spotted dolphins. In the afternoon we started with a large and active group of bottlenose dolphins. Shortly after one of our boats came across some sperm whales. So, it was a nice day in the company of two seasonal species in the morning and two resident species in the afternoon.
