With mixed weather we had beautiful encounters with both bottlenose dolphins and Atlantic spotted dolphins. Sperm whales were also in the area in the morning but they did not stay on the surface long so that all we got to see was some blows from the elusive whales. In the afternoon aboard our catamaran we also spotted a fairly large loggerhead turtle and we had a beautiful view of Vila Franca Islet on our return back to Ponta Delgada.
