A day with Sperm whale "Mr Liable"

Today we had a great day! 
In the morning, despite some waves, we were able to see Mr. Liable, our resident male sperm whale! It's always good to be able to enjoy it with his impressive tail! 

In the afternoon, some of our staff decided to go try the hydrophone, so try to find Mr. Liable or other sperm whales again. And we did it!! Mr. Libale is very communicative, and we could hear him perfectly on the hydrophone. 

On the way back, we still saw a bottlenose dolphin alone, with a wound under one of the pectoral fins. We hope Mr. Liable stays here at least until Christmas!
