|08082020pm| No social distance for the spotted dolphins

Afternoon arrived and the wind slowed down, allowing a smooth trip!


We were able to sight 5 different sperm whales and one of them was a small juvenile. All of them were kind and showed us their tails!


After, we went to see a big and friendly group of spotted dolphins (Stenella frontalis). This species is well known for their friendly behavior where they get close to the boat and stayed like this during the entire sighting.


During the sighting, they socialized a lot with each other and with the boat, so we think they really don't know anything about social distance. ;)


We also saw them hunting!


The group was very big, had at least 120 animals and so many tiny babies. The dolphins only have one baby at the time and the babies when born they can be smaller than 1 meter.



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


See you soon!
