Pilot Whales & Bottlenose Dolphins

It has been a great start to the year with not only sperm whales feeding close inshore but we have also had a pod of pilot whales and bottlenose dolphins spending time here. Usually they would be seen maybe for a day or two at a time but for some reason these beautiful creatures decided to spend nearly 3 weeks with us. Here are a few pics of their time with us.
