Sperm whales in São Miguel

This morning we had a bit of rain and wind, but not enough to stop us from going out on a great tour in which we saw a group of sperm whales. The group included many individuals that we recognised from previous sightings in the past few weeks and also previous years. We were able to see six individuals from the group, including two adult pairs and a mother and juvenile pair. We also got to see some really good high tails as the whales went down on their dives.
