30.09.2016 – Whalisch
Today out on the ocean a very special language was required: Whalish! How many times does it happen to see a huge Toothed whale in the morning and two Baleen whales in the afternoon? Not so often! This morning we all had a very special situation with a Sperm whale, which swam towards Stenella raised his head, turned on his side and glided side wards along our boat. In this position it was possible to see his light colored mandible. At the afternoon we had the toothless big ones! Tropical whales, a female with her calf travelled at a leisurely pace along the coast. To observe these gentle giants is a very unique experience. During our different trips we also had dolphins: Common dolphins, Atlantic Spotted dolphins and Bottlenose dolphins. What a colorful day! Thanks!
