Lovely whales and dolphins

In the last two days we have had a lot of sun calm waters and a fantastic visibility. These are the ideal conditions for whale watching as it makes it easier to spot whales and dolphins from land. Both yesterday and today we have encountered the same group of sperm whales. It is a group made up of females and calves that we have observed travelling slowly along the south coast of the island. Today we spotted 4 to 6 individuals just outside Ponta Delgada, about 5 - 6 miles off the coastline. After the whales it was time to see a large group of bottlenose dolphins. Their playful jumps alongside our boats brought smiles to all our clients' faces. The last two days were fantastic!!!
