Today in the morning we had two blue whales passing the south coast of São Miguel. During this tour we also encountered common dolphins and those on our smaller boat had a brief encounter with striped dolphins. The conditions during the day were not the best, and in the afternoon the wind had increased making it difficult to sight animals. Hopefully by tomorrow the sea will have calmed down again.

Just when we were leaving both whales surprised us by surfacing near our smaller boat for us to see them one last time
