Whale blows, blows and tails!!!

Today we had more adventures of the coast of São Miguel Island! We had three tours and all of them were full of whale sightings. Our first encounter in the morning was with several different groups of sperm whales just in front of Ponta Garça. There were 10 whales here, another 12 there, 6 more in the distance, basically sperm whales everywhere! As far as we could see the horizon was full of blows.
 
In the afternoon we had the same situation, only this time the whales were in front of Vila Franca. For our last tour the sperm whales were still there and we alos had a bonus sighting of a sei whale.
On all of our tours we also encountered bottlenose dolphins and Atlantic spotted dolphins.
What a day!!!
