What a perfect Sunday morning, sunny, dolphins, birds and lots of sperm whales!
As soon as we started the trip, just two minutes from the marina we found a big group of common dolphins feeding along with many seagulls, quite a show and the day was just starting!
We keep on moving to the South and we arrived to the area where our lookouts have spotted sperm whales, we started to see blows in the distance and what a surprise before we realized we were surrounded by lots of sperm whales, at least 20 animals! We got to see them very well, they were so calm, relaxing in the surface, rolling, spyhopping on us, and it was a great opportunity to use our hydrophone and play the sounds on the vessel speakers, so everyone on board could hear the clicks they were making, used for echolocation.
And when we thought we have seen it all, and animal amazed us jumping three times and we were able to see its all body out of the water!
What an incredible day, this is what you get in the Azorean paradise!
