|20072020| Super curious sei whale juvenile!

A sunny afternoon calls for an expedition at sea!


With the whales on sight, by our spotter, and all the Naturalists properly equiped, we went to look for the whales :)


On our way to the whales we were surprised by a group of spotted dolphins (Stenellla frontalis) and then by a group of bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) with 40 animals, including a lot of babies! A lot of good distractions on our way to the whales :)


After seeing the dolphins we saw a big sei whale (Balaenoptera borealis) travelling in a low speed (they can reach speeds of 25 km/hr) and not to far away from the boat. For our luck we had another two sei whales not to far away from our position. So we said goodbye to the first one and went to meet the other two.


During the sighting of the two sei whales, the juvenile got extremely curious and came really close to us, to have a better look of the boat!


To finish our expedition we went to see a sperm whale (Physeter macrocephalus), and the whale slowly went to deeper waters showing us the beautiful tail.


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


See you soon!
