The first pilot whales of the Year 2008

So far this year the weather conditions have not been so good and we have only had five tours so far. Until now we have observed common dolphins, bottlenose dolphins and Risso's dolphins. On the 14th of January we added another species to our list for this year - pilot whales! A group of about 30 individuals made up of subgroups of females, calves and males were sighted south of Praia da Amora. We stopped the boat for a few minutes to watch them as they stayed calmly around the boat.
