A whale day

This morning we went out whale watching in our other catamaran Quatro ventos as well as our smaller boats. We stared with a group of bottlenose dolphins near Ponta Delgada but the group was small and not easy to watch, so we continued further because we already knew that our lookout had spotted sperm whales for us further to the east. Not long after arriving to the area we saw the first blow. In the end we encountered 2 adults followed by an adult and calf pair. On the way back we passed by a few common dolphins, but this time it was really the whales that made tour.
