Many baby dolphins in our tours

Today in Sao Miguel we saw the same large group of young bottlenose dolphins we saw yesterday. They were spread out over a large area, always very active and mating! Jumps, leaps, bellies up and splashes all over! 

After that we went further south to enjoy with a big group of Atlantic spotted dolphins. There were so many babies! Very young ones, even newborns! Summer time!!! :)

In the afternoon, we went swimming with dolphins. It was a group of male residents dolphins. Near the area, we also had sperm whales, so we went there and we get to see a sperm whale tail and a calf very curious about our boat. We also encountered a group of Sowerby's beaked whale and some calves.
