What a day!!!


Today our whale watching tour was to the west of São Miguel Island again, just four miles off the coast of Mosteiros Islet. Here we encountered a group of sperm whales logging very calmly at the surface. The whales were not diving, just lying there, which gave us the perfect opportunity to observe them. It seems that today they are just taking the day off to rest at the surface.
In the morning we encountered other species: a huge pod of Atlantic spotted dolphins and some bottlenose dolphins.
