March 2017 sightings statistics

This was a good month in terms of the variety of species on the island of São Miguel. During this month of March we saw 8 different species: 4 species of dolphins and 4 species of whales. The Common dolphin and the sperm whale were our champions in the sightings, but the fin whales and the bottlenose dolphins are not far behind. This month we saw very different groups of Bottlenose Dolphins. It was possible to see two groups that we had not seen for a long time, the Egyptian group and Max group. We also started to see the first humpback whales and in these last days the sei whales also began their visits to our seas. This month of March was a good start for migratory whales, we hope April will bring us many more surprises.
