4 species of dolphin in São Miguel and sperm whale very curious in Pico Island


Full of dolphins out off São Miguel. This morning we could see our resident species bottlenose dolphins and also the "tourist" of our waters, the seasonal species Atlantic spotted dolphins. 

This afternoon, we were with another resident species, the common dolphins, also we saw the favorite dolphins of some of our biologist,  the resident species Risso's dolphins and then we were with a group of bottlenose dolphins that they were in a really good mood to swim with our guests.

On Pico Island, we had a windy day, even though we could see a male sperm whale very curious about our boat. We also encountered Atlantic spotted dolphins.
