This morning we went out for whale watching trip and just after leaving the marina of Ponta Delgada we spotted our first species of the day: Common Dolphin. A small pod but they were very curious about our boat. They even bow ride us! Was really good to be with them. We continued our trip and we spot something ahead. We approached slowly but it was actually a tree trunk that looked like a sperm whale! Suddenly the lookout spotted a blow and by its form it was a baleen whale.
We arrived the area, but unfortunately it was not possible to see it. We decided then to leave the area and continue our trip. After a while we spotted some splashes. What a big surprise: Striped dolphins! They were very active on the surface and provided us with an authentic show of jumps and acrobatics. It was such a speechless moment!
