A great day in São Miguel Island with 8 different species


This morning we saw 8 species, our catamaran and zodiacs spotted the resident species bottlenose dolphins but then each boat was different. 



Our catamaran 'Cetus'

Our catamaran could see for a moment a Minke whale and also saw a Sei whale

On the other hand, our zodiacs managed to see Common dolphins, Atlantic spotted dolphins, a fin whale that was a bit shy and a Sperm whale breaching several times!!

To finish, on our afternoon tour we saw Risso's dolphins being the 8th species that we saw today. Then we went with the bottlenose dolphins and close to them was our male resident Sperm whale Mr. Liable, who showed the tail again.
