This weekend we have enjoyed the company of fin whales here in São Miguel, Azores. On both Saturday and Sunday we saw fin whales. It has been a great way to spend the weekend, with the second largest animal in the world, and the fastest whale species (they can reach speeds of 47 km/hr). Yesterday's whale watchers also came across a nice group of common dolphins. Although today our vigia (onshore lookout) also spotted some common dolphins and bottlenose dolphins, our attention was turned to the fin whales. This is the best time of the year to see these large whale species here in the Azores, so what are you waiting for?
