An encounter with 12 sperm whales in Pico

Our biologist Romero has just reported to us that this morning they had good weather and a very good tour aboard one of our zodiac boats which departed from Lajes do Pico. On this tour they watched 10 sperm whales at the surface together, followed by two more whales in the same area. It is not uncommon for us to see so many sperm whales together as they are very social with strong family bonds. As well as the whales on this morning's tour Risso's dolphins and Common dolphins were also encountered.
