Blue whale day and a shining one!

This morning we were out with the two biggest animals in the world they were in the
same area, a blue whale and a fin whale. Moreover our resident species
bottlenose dolphins were seen by our zodiacs.
Then in the afternoon we went out again, and we shared a nice moment with a blue whale! Really impressive, the whale even showed the tail, a behavior quiet rare from this species. After the blue whale, our boats went to the area where the bottlenose dolphins were. Again, a really sociable and playful behavior. So, as it is said in the title another blue day here in São Miguel with a shining sun. Also the boats from swim with dolphins spotted a group of Risso‘s dolphins, a resident species from these water, but they didn't let us swim with them, they used to keep the distance with the boats and we respect them.
