|27072020| Active bottlenose dolphins


Today we had almost no wind, so we had almost a flat sea!


We saw a small group of bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus). In the beginning, they approached the boat but then they kept their "social distance" rule from humans. After a while, they start to be more active, they performed some jumps and it was also possible to see some sexual behaviour (e.g. chasing each other and rubbing their bellies).


Then we left the group of dolphins and went to look for the biggest toothed whale, the sperm whale (Physeter macrocephalus)!

We saw at least two different animals, we know for sure because when they deep dove to find their favorite food, the squid, we got to the see their tails.


On our way back we found again the group of bottlenose dolphins that we saw earlier!


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


See you soon!
