Sightings of Pilot whales can really show how different encounters can be with a single species. During the mornings we often see them swimming very slowly at the surface in tight groups. They often feed at night so mornings can be a good time for a little rest. When we see them later in the day, or if there are ocean swells, they are very different! They seem to enjoy riding the waves in the open seas and can be quite social, even mixing with the Bottlenose dolphins.
