April 2008 sighting statistics


April has been a great month for whale watching in São Miguel Island, Azores. This is expected this time of the year, as it is the time that the baleen whales (mostly fin whales, blue whales and sei whales) migrate past and we can see many other species that are either passing or resident here.

Below is a list of all species, ordered from the most encountered to the least encountered:
