A huge group of sperm whales!

Today a big group of sperm whales surrounds the south coast of São Miguel Island, bringing us up to more than four days that we have seen this same group travelling together. In the morning they appeared close to the village of Agua de Pau where Futurismo has a vigia (onshore lookout). The group was later seen travelling southwest, further away from the coastline. This situation allowed us to see sperm whales both our morning and afternoon tours today.
 
The dolphins are an almost constant presence and they usually come close to our boats as they did today. The dolphin species sighted today were Atlantic spotted dolphins, common dolphins and bottlenose dolphins.
