Today was a beautiful day in São Miguel. The sea was really calm and clear and by mid morning the sun made an appearance to warm the day. It was one of those great days of many sightings on the sea. We had some really great encounters with our resident bottlenose dolphins and also with a group of striped dolphins that were leaping across the flat surface in the characteristic way that they travel. The whale species seen today were sperm whales for both the morning and afternoon tours, and a humpback whale mother and calf in the afternoon. These photos taken today give an impression of this great day:
