Sei whale and dolphins in a silver sea

Common dolphins and spotted dolphins kept us company this morning with their grace and playfulness. São Miguel was covered in rain for a while and the visibility for our lookouts was not the best, even with their backup and all the crew searching, we couldn't find any whales this morning. But the dolphins sure gave us an amazing show with lots of adorable babies and put a big smile on all our faces. In the afternoon we resighted the two dolphin species and we had a grand final with a wonderful sei whale. Photos from today:

One of the calf was jumping several times close to our catamaran, looking at us
