The amazing blue whales of the Azores

Today Futurismo had two whale watching tours. The weather was foggy and the visibility was poor, giving our vigia (onshore lookout) a difficult job.  But even with these conditions there's no chance in missing the blow from a blue whales because it can reach the 12 m in height. In the morning we were with one blue whale...and of course our friendly dolphins. Risso's dolphins also came along, although pretty shy as they usually are. In the afternoon we saw blue whales again! A presence that we've been getting used to as this year we have a record of blue whale sightings!
