Today the fin whales were back to join us! We encountered 3 individuals not far from Ponta Delgada and we suspect they were probably the same ones from two days ago. It's been a really great start to the year for seeing whales off São Miguel island.
There is always some news when it comes to our sea tours! Today we had a very special tour with the sighting of two beautiful Sperm whales that we have not registered before and also a group of common dolphins. Everybody had a delightful experience!
Today we had the visit of the Fin whales, apparently they came earlier this year. We got to see 3 of them! The day was beautiful with the sun shining in the sky. The sea was a bit wavy, just like yesterday though. Our clients loved the bottlenose dolphins surfing the waves and the little dog also enjoyed the ocean breeze. A perfect day in the ocean!
The sea was excellent almost looking like a Grey mirror, without the slightest ripple. We found common dolphins at the beginning of our trip, and a little bit further ahead more Bottlenose dolphins that were super curious, we could even hear them at the bow of the boat. What a great morning! The Sperm whales also came to wish us a good weekend! To finish this amazing trip, a humpback whale joined us. It was an amazing winter experience!
Today we were "alone" in the ocean with our 3 resident species! We started with a playful group of common dolphins, later on a smaller group of risso's dolphins and for the delight of all of us and our clients: the Sperm whales came and visited us, this time a group of more than 4 individuals! The perfect winter morning here in São Miguel - Azores!
