Three types of sightings in São Miguel Island and 6 different species in Pico Island

This morning we saw the three types of sightings that we can have here, in the Azores.

Our zodiac boat was with a migratory species, sei whales; both boats could see sperm whales, our resident species,  and then we shared a wonderful moment with our seasonal species Atlantic spotted dolphins

Then in the afternoon, we were with a different species from the morning, Bottlenose dolphin one of our resident dolphins, moreover we saw again sperm whale.
