Lesson of the day: The whales exist!

Today we had wonderful surprise: a group of 5 sperm whales, a group made out of young females and a baby. The sperm whales were resting and babysitting the young calf and we only saw them in the morning. For 2013 the trend has been that the majority of the sperm whales have been far from the coast.
Beyond the sperm whales we saw a small group of Atlantic spotted dolphin. They are still here! A huge and spread out pod of common dolphins, with over 200 individuals. And also a few loggerhead turtles.
