Breaching sperm whales and other four other species of cetaceans

We started the day splendidly. We've sighted five species of cetaceans: striped dolphins, bottlenose dolphins, common dolphins, pilot whales and sperm whales. 

The four species of dolphins were very lively, but the sperm whale surprised us with magnificent jumps. We saw a single individual, but this incredible animal put on an amazing show.

On the afternoon trip, we saw three of the species seen in the morning, dolphins, pilot whales and sperm whales. They were all very calm on the surface, socializing and resting. This time we saw seven sperm whales in the same area. A family of weight!
