Today we had such a memorable day at the sea! In the morning trip we saw a huge pod of Atlantic spotted dolphins feeding with Cory's shearwater! We were enjoying the dolphins when our lookout spotted some blows! When we arrived the area: sperm whales! we started with 3 individuals and when one dived, we saw a calf breaching! In the end we saw 7 different individuals! When we were leaving the area, a different blow was seen! A baleen whale blow! We approached and we saw something very unique! a Sei whale without dorsal fin :O it was damaged! In our way back we spotted some stripped dolphins and a small pod of common dolphins.
In the afternoon trip we had such an amazing surprise! Half mile from the coast a small pod of FALSE KILLER WHALES! They were spread out and moving really fast, but suddenly our clients from the zodiac were surprised by a close call from a false killer whale! It was just speechless! After them, we continued our trip and we saw two blows! Like in the morning, sperm whales! But this time, only two. A male and a female! Our famous Mr. Liable was with a female and they both showed their tails! When we were returning to Ponta Delgada we saw some bottlenose dolphins!
