June sighting statistics

June was another great month for whale watching in São Miguel. This month we saw 8 cetacean species:


  • Common dolphins (Delphinus delphis)

  • Bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus)

  • Striped dolphins (Stenella coeruleoalba)

  • Atlantic spotted dolphins (Stenella frontalis)

  • Risso's dolphins (Grampus griseus)

  • Pilot whales (Globicephala macrorhyncus)

  • Beaked whale (Mesoplodon sp.)

  • Sperm whales (Physeter macrocephalus)
This month is also turning out to be really good so far. Yesterday we already saw 8 species throughout the day!
