I was lucky enough to spot these beautiful pilot whales aboard the Freebird catarmaran Los Cristianos, Tenerife in December 2015. The whales seemed quite relaxed around the boat, rising out of the water to take breaths every few minutes.
It’s a moment I will never forget as I heard and felt the pilot whales making sounds beneath the boat in the water. It was indescribably beautiful. How people could ever hurt these magnificent mammals is completely beyond me.
