The first day of summer the four resident species were spotted. In the morning we found several sperm whales, also small ones! Some of them were resting, while others showed the tail to go for a deep dive. We enjoyed as well with two fin whales, one bigger than the other, who stayed around our boats calmly. A nice group of common dolphins was found during our way back to Ponta Delgada, and of course, with lots of babies! One of our boats was lucky enough to see Risso´s dolphin too, and other boat Atlantic spotted dolphin as well.
In the afternoon, we started our trip with sperm whales, very shy and small ones, and then we moved to a bigger one, which we think it could be our well know Mr. Liable, even we couldn´t confirm it because we didn't see the tail, just shallow dives all the time. We saw again common dolphins and bottlenose dolphins, and even a loggerhead turtle!
Today we were pleased to receive a very nice gift made with plastic lids from a local school from Arrifes (Ponta Delgada, Açores). Thank you!
