3 resident species: sperm whales, bottlenose and common dolphins

Today we had great sightings both morning and afternoon with sperm whales, bottlenose dolphins and common dolphins. Three species that are resident to the Azores, which means we can see them all year around. We also had swimming boats out there enjoying the company of common dolphins underwater.
