Weekly update

Today we are looking forward to another big day of whale/dolphin watching, dolphin swimming, and a full day tour of combined whale/dolphin watching and snorkeling on Vila Franca islet.

During the past week we have been viewing many groups of dolphins off our coastline. However, yesterday we were also able to see sperm whales again, after not seeing them for a few days. During both our morning and afternoon tours we were able to see many individuals that were part of a large pod. We were also saw some very good groups of bottlenose dolphins and Atlantic spotted dolphins. In the afternoon we had a very friendly tern following 2 of our boats and trying to land on them. Here are some photos that were kindly shared by one of our passengers: Mr Jensen from Denmark:
