|01082020| New month, new adventures!

Definitely a wonderful way to start this new month!


Weekend with a sunny day and off we go to a new adventure.


When we arrived in the area where our spotter saw a group of sperm whales (Physeter macrocephalus) the animals where deep diving, they can be on average 40 minutes underwater, so we had to wait a little bit.


After a few minutes, we saw our first blow!

We saw 4 sperm whales :)


When we were waiting for a sperm whale to come to the surface we spotted a group of pilot whales (Globicephala sp.), the group was a bit dispersed but we saw four animals together, including a calf.


After seeing the pilot whales we went to meet some dolphins that our spotter had found. It was a group of friendly spotted dolphins (Stenella frontalis) :)


To our surprise, just a few meters from the dolphins, we found a sei whale (Balaeonoptera borealis)! The sei whale belongs to the group of baleen whales, where they filter the water through their baleen plates.


What a day! Four different species in one morning!


Thank you to everyone that joined us! Enjoy and share the photos from our expeditions.


See you soon!
