Sperm whale and bottlenose dolphins in São Miguel and in Pico 5 species

Today we had a beautiful day for our sightings during our tours. We saw a sperm whale diving. We are pretty sure it was the same individual in the morning tour and in the afternoon tour.

We also saw a giant group of bottlenose dolphins. Is curious the fact they were also the same individuals we encountered in the morning :)

In Pico island we had a wonderful whale watching day. The highlight perhaps are the sowerby beaked whales we saw. It's such a rare species. But we also encountered sperm whales, sei whales, risso's dolphins and bottlenose dolphins.
