Christmas Day with False Killer Whales

This year we celebrated Christmas day by going on a whale watching tour on our catamaran. We received a very nice present - an encounter with False Killer Whales, a species that we do not see often in the Azores! We also saw many groups of common dolphins and to increase the Christmas spirit we had our own Santaclaus aboard! Following are a video and some photos from today's Christmas Tour.

Merry Christmas everybody!
