Sei whales sighted again

Today we had another great tour for seeing migratory baleen whales. Two sei whales were sighted far from Ponta Delgada, directly off the coast of Lagoa! Because the sea was a bit rough it took quite some time to get to the area and the pictures didn't come out as good as we wanted them to be. However, the important thing is that everybody go to see the sei whales, the third largest animal in the world! Also, some common dolphins and a tiny turtle were sighted, making the trip complete and making today's clients happy!

Although it was really dificult to find the whales with all the waves, in the end it was really worth it and everyone fully enjoyed the day!
