Sperm whale close to the shore

Today was a great day for viewing a group of sperm whales that was close to São Miguel Island today. We managed to see several of the whales from the group during both our morning and afternoon tours. In the morning we also saw a group of bottlenose dolphins (very close to the coastline just outside of the marina) while in the afternoon we encountered common dolphins instead.
