Calm sperm whales in a flat ocean

Today was a very calm day, bringing us back to the summer. These are the best days to be out on the ocean, as the water is like a mirror and its great for seeing the animals. On this nice day we had sperm whales to the east, so we got to see them during both our tours today. We could see several different whales, including calves that were coming and going to the surface. In the afternoon we could even see 3 different tails! As for dolphins, we encountered common dolphins in the morning and Atlantic spotted dolphins in the afternoon. To top it off, we watched a nice loggerhead turtle in the afternoon before returning to the sunset in Ponta Delgada to end the day well.
