Pilot whales, striped dolphins, Atlantic spotted dolphins and common dolphins sighted in São Miguel

This morning our passengers were very lucky, as we had another great whale watching tour. We got to see 4 cetacean species: pilot whales, striped dolphins, Atlantic spotted dolphins and common dolphins. This winter we have had some exceptional sightings, in fact the spotted and striped dolphins are more summer species in this area so it was great to see them this time of the year (it was the first time in more than 3 months that we observed striped dolphins here). The following photo is of a large male pilot whale that passed close to our boat:
