4 whale species including Bryde's whales in São Miguel, Azores

In the last days we have seen our resident sperm whales and we have also had more rare encounters with Bryde´s whalesfin whales and sei whales. As usual there have also been many dolphins in the area. In recent days we have seen bottlenose dolphins, common dolphins, striped dolphins, Atlantic spotted dolphins and Risso´s dolphins. That's 9 cetacean species in the space of just a few days! To make it even better we have had great weather too. Below are some of our photos from recent tours:
