Whale and dolphin watching in São Miguel

This morning we had many sightings during our whale and dolphin watching tour. Among our different boats on the water we encountered sperm whales, Atlantic spotted dolphins, common dolphins and bottlenose dolphins. Our vigia on the coastline also spotted some orcas (which one of our boats tried to reach but unfortunately they were travelling away to the north coast of the island) and another species which looked like beaked whales. In the afternoon the weather was not so great, in fact the visibility was very poor and we had rain throughout the whole tour. We did manage to find some common dolpins and one of our boats also bottlenose dolphins.
