Blue whales in São Miguel Island tours and 5 different species in Pico Island

Today was another successful day out on the ocean in Pico Island. 

Just in the morning, we encountered 5 different whale and dolphin species. We saw a baby Risso's dolphin, Striped and common dolphins very curious, a Sperm whale breaching and a Fin whale. It´s a very good experience not just for us but also for our guests!

In São Miguel Island it was a blue whale day.

We encountered two big adults in the morning and another one in the afternoon. The sky was also blue today, as well as the ocean which was very calm and clear, giving us great conditions to watch these magnificent blue whales.

We also encountered our resident bottlenose dolphins today, both in the morning and afternoon in big groups spread out over a large area. They were really nice to watch in the calm blue water, coming close to our boats and also putting on a great display with their jumps and acrobatics, as you can see in some of our photos which capture these nice moments we shared with our guests.
