Sperm whales and our first Full Day tour of the summer

Today we was a beautiful summers day in São Miguel, Azores. On this sunny day we had our first Full Day tour as well as our regular whale watching in the morning and afternoon. Our whale watchers encountered a group of sperm whales and common dolphins throughout the day. Those that were on the Full Day tour enjoyed the whale and dolphin encounters in the morning followed by an afternoon of sunshine on Vila Franca Islet.
