The real summer has finally arrived to the Azores! The past few days have been just perfect to go to sea. The sea has been calm and clear, the water is warming up and we have had some great sightings. Over the past few days we have been seeing sperm whales, pilot whales, common dolphins, striped dolphins, Risso's dolphins and many other species like loggerhead turtles, a leatherback turtle, sunfish, sharks and many bird species. The following photos are just a small sample of the many great sightings we have had off São Miguel island over the past few days.
