Sperm whales in São Miguel

Today we encountered a group of sperm whales off the coast of São Miguel. The group was made up of at least 12 individuals, including several adults we recognise from previous encounters here and also a couple of younger whales including a very small calf. We were lucky to see several great tails as the whales went on their dives. On our way back inshore we also encountered a group of about 30 common dolphins, again with young animals sighted among the group.
