At last a beautifull sunny day

Today we had a pleasant day out on the ocean: a nice warm sun, blue sky and calm sea. We hoped with those conditions the vigias (onshore lookouts) would spot some whales, but unfortunately they didn't. We spent the day with common dolphins and Risso's dolphins instead. At the end of our last tour we had a nice surprise: the cory's shearwater are back to nest in the Azores for the summer. We saw a large group, around two miles from the coast of Ponta Delgada.
Let's hope the baleen whales will also start appearing soon.
