False killer whales in Dauin

We are used to small things at Atmosphere: Frogfish, pygmy seahorses, harlequin shrimps… Turtles and snakes and the occasional whale shark are also what you can expect to see at Atmosphere but who would have thought we’d come upon a big pod of false killer whales! A couple of divers were diving off speedboat Eve in Dauin and heading back to the resort when they spotted the whales breaching offshore! We returned to land, grabbed cameras and went out to photograph them first thinking they were pilot whales, but later on had them ID’d as false killer whales. It’s all in the fins apparently…
