Tarifa, August '23 - more whales and dolphins

Sperm Whales (above and below)

It wasn't all frolicking Long-finned Pilot Whales (here) and Orcas (here).... we also had great, close encounters with three species of dolphin - Striped (pictured), Common and Bottlenose - and both of the big whale target species: Sperm (several), and from dry land on our final afternoon, a group of four Fin Whales, together, just offshore.
To say it was a successful trip for cetaceans would be an understatement, and I can't wait to get back out there next August.....
