Sperm, Blue and Fin whales and two dolphin species

Despite the bad weather in São Miguel Island, we had in the morning that forced us to cancel the morning tour, the afternoon was amazing. We encountered four species of cetaceans!

We started our journey with two blue whales, a mother with a calf; followed by a fin whale that was encountered from the boat when we were heading the bottlenose dolphins; once we arrived in the area… sperm whales appeared!

We spend also some time with the dolphins, that was, by the way, a giant group with more than 200 dolphins over there; and to finish we saw another sperm whale.

In Pico Island we encountered two resident species. Sperm whales and Common dolphins.
