Friday Morning | Whale and Dolphin Watching

The sea was excellent almost looking like a Grey mirror, without the slightest ripple.
We found common dolphins at the beginning of our trip, and a little bit further ahead more Bottlenose dolphins that were super curious, we could even hear them at the bow of the boat.
What a great morning! The Sperm whales also came to wish us a good weekend! To finish this amazing trip, a humpback whale joined us. It was an amazing winter experience!

Today we were "alone" in the ocean with our 3 resident species! We started with a playful group of common dolphins, later on a smaller group of risso's dolphins and for the delight of all of us and our clients: the Sperm whales came and visited us, this time a group of more than 4 individuals! The perfect winter morning here in São Miguel - Azores!

Wednesday morning | Whale and dolphin watching

Today the sea was spectacularly clear, just like summer time. We saw lots of common dolphins, and it was very funny watching them "playing" with fish!

Tuesday Morning | Whale and Dolphin Watching

Today we had an amazing ocean experience. We had an amazing day with very different types of species. Our residents: common dolphins showed up just to say "hi" and made the delight of our clients with big jumps and amazing acrobatics. We also had a not so common visit from the beaked whales that we could not caught on camera, since they are more shy. A super wildlife experience!

Saturday Morning - Whale and dolphin Watching

Today we had our first 2018 "hi" from the Risso's dolphins! A group of females and juveniles showed up on our morning trip. A lovely experience on a specially cold morning in the Azores, despite the mild climate.

First sperm whales of the year!

This morning  we went out and we encountered for the first  sperm whales of 2018! When we arrived to the area where the whales were, our looking warned us that they were swimming very fast and making many short dives; it was not the easiest day but in the end we managed to see a calf and two adult togheter later on.
Once the sperm whales were well seen we continue our  tour to see some common dolphins; a big group appeared and in contrast this ones were very curious swimming with us, bow ridding our catamaran and making some small jumps.
Today was a very pleasant tour, we hope to see over and over this beautiful animals this year!
