June starts with whales

June started with grey skies, but with the same high level of observations. This morning it was foggy so the visibility was poor and not good for whale watching. But we decided to take the chance and ended up finding sperm whales south of Vila Franca and bottlenose dolphins in the area of Galera. In the end everybody enjoyed the tour. . To bad to the whale watching. The watchers got nothing to us, but as the sea is calm we decide to take the chance. In the afternoon we had the same luck. We began our tour with an encounter with bottlenose dolphins off the coast of Água d'Alto. Next we went to Ribeira Quente to see the sperm whales. We got to see a whole family made up of males, females and as usual a lot of calves. Super!
