Today we had some very successful tours, with sperm whales, common dolphins and Atlantic spotted dolphins in the morning, including three female sperm whales, one which was accompanied by her calf! This mother also fluked, showing off her lovely tail. In the afternoon the sea was a little choppier however we still had an amazing experience, as we saw a breaching species of baleen whale, most likely it was a Bryde's whale!!! When we got a little closer we saw that there were actually two individuals, with one swimming straight towards the boat. It gave a great impression of just how big these animals are – after all they are the third largest whale in the world!
