Sperm whales and dolphins

We went out in the bigger of the boats in a group of 20 and we were incredibly lucky to run into a huge group of Sperm Whales rather quickly. We also got to see them interact with bottlenose dolphins and on the way back to port we ran into some common dolphins. The staff was great and very knowledgeable. Glad we got to go before everything shut down. We will definitely be back.
