Maldives, April 2022

Report of a 17-day cetacean cruise around the northern atolls of the Maldives, led by Dr Charles Anderson (Whale and Dolphin Company). Fourteen cetacean species recorded, including particularly large numbers of Spinner Dolphins, as well as Striped Dolphins, Pantropical Spotted Dolphins, Risso’s Dolphins, Common Bottlenose Dolphins, Indo-pacific Bottlenose Dolphins and Shortfin Pilot Whales. We also enjoyed excellent encounters with Pygmy Killer Whales, False Killer Whales, Cuvier’s Beaked Whales, Blainville’s Beaked Whales and Dwarf Sperm Whales, as well as with Sperm Whale and Rough-toothed Dolphin.
