The past two days in São Miguel have been great for our whale watching tours. We have been very busy over this easter period taking out many people to see the whales and dolphins that have been around. The sea has been very calm, so it has been perfect to also see many other species such as sharks, turtles, and even tuna. Yesterday we saw 5 cetacean species during 3 tours: sperm whales, a minke whale, common dolphins, Risso´s dolphins and striped dolphins. Later we will provide an update from our tour this afternoon. For now, here are some photos from our tours this morning.
