This year is shaping up to be a good one for blue whales in São Miguel. This morning we had another blue whale sighting from aboard our catamaran, making it our 12th blue whale tour in 15 days! It was an exciting encounter, out on the big blue, riding over the waves and being in the presence of the largest animal that has ever lived on earth! Before our blue whale encounter we also came across a small group of common dolphins who were enjoying playing in the waves.
