The Best of 2007!

During last year we had many unforgetable moments. 3 of them that really stood out were:

In April we observed a group of orcas attacking and killing a fin whale.

A very curious whale shark (the largest fish in the world) of about 8 m approached our boat (about half a meter from us). It was the first time we have encountered the species since we started whale watching here.
In November we saw a white sperm whale. The Moby Dick legend was reborn in the Azores. The whale was a young calf with a big head and was white all over. It was observed swimming alongside its mother and the other whales of the group. They seemed very protective over the newborn of the group.
