Sperm whales, sei whales and dolphins

Today Futurismo had three whale watching tours in São Miguel Island. All three tours were very sucessfull: In the morning and afternoon we saw a group of sperm whales, three sei whales and dolphins and during the evening tour we we saw the same sperm whales and more dolphins. Virtually every day in the Azores is like this, full of many whale and dolphin sightings. One of the reasons of our great success is due to the way we find the animals. We simply spot them from land, using skilled whales spotters (known as vigias in Portuguese) equiped with powerfull binoculars. Futurismo has a network of lookouts along the south coast of São Miguel Island that spot almost everything we see on our tours. Hopefully tomorrow they will continue to see the whales out there...
