Today we were lucky with our whale watching in Pico Island. We found a pod of sperm whales just one mile from the Ribeiras Village. The sea was calm the whales looked like logs floating over the surface. They were calmly resting with smooth movements, socialising amongst themselves every now and then. We just stopped the boat and spent some time queitly observing these moments.
Our trip got even better when we came across a pod of Atlantic spotted dolphins. They followed the boat, jumping and riding the waves as if they were surfing.
In the afternoon there was a lot of wind at sea but we were just as succesfull with the same two species: sperm whales and Atlantic spotted dolphins.
