Sightings today: sperm whales, common dolphins, sei whales and bottlenose dolphins

Today we had another great day of whale watching. During the morning tour, groups of common dolphins and sperm whales were seen off the South coast of São Miguel island. In the afternoon we went out with the intention of seeing the sperm whales again, but the tour turned completely different. Instead we saw 5 Sei whales and a large group of bottlenose dolphins. Out here every tour is unique, you never really know what you will be seeing, which is makes it more exciting. Here are some photos from our afternoon tour today:
