Our most famous sperm whale - Mr Liable

Our most famous sperm whale in São Miguel (Mr Liable) has been off the south coast of the island today and once again he has proved to us why we named him for being so reliable. This well known male sperm whale is reliable in returning to São Miguel on a regular basis, his dives are often very predictable and he is usually really good to watch with an amazing ending - his beautiful tail! Although Mr Liable was our highlight of the day we also encountered another sperm whale who we have yet to identify as well as Atlantic spotted dolphins, bottlenose dolphins and common dolphins.
