Species sighted: Sperm whale, Grampi, Striped dolphins
Shortly after leaving Genoa’s Porto Antico, Alessandro spotted the first big breath of the day: a sperm whale. After a dive lasting about 50 minutes, the animal remained on the surface, not at all bothered by the boat. Subsequently a group of 30 Grampi surrounded the motor ship and they allowed themselves to be photographed at a distance of a few meters. The animals showed their headstanding: vertically upside down they kept their tails out of the water. Some dolphins swam among the stalks, almost being chased by them. Then the sperm whale came back to catch his breath and once again it was possible to spend the previous moments with him another dive in search of food.
