Our first pilot whales for the year!

This afternoon we saw pilot whales off the coast of São Miguel for the first time this year. It has been a good day in general. In the afternoon we also had encounters with bottlenose dolphins and common dolphins, and a few of us also saw some striped dolphins among the common dolphins. Our dolphin swimming was also very sucessful this afternoon. The crew came back speaking of a very nice swim with our resident common dolphins. The morning was also very good, as our whale watchers had a very nice encounter with "Mr Liable", a large male sperm whale that frequently visits this area and could be identified from his tail which he raised nice and high during our encounter with him. Here are some photos from this afternoon:
