Three Northern bottlenose whales in São Miguel Island


Today we have been with a big group of common dolphins with very young babies. They are still learning to jump! 

This morning, while looking for sperm whales, we found three ​North Atlantic bottlenose whales... what a surprise!! They are not seeing quite often here, so everytime they appear is a bonus for us! 

A big male sperm whale was around as well, doing very long dives and showing his majestic tail.

In Pico Island, today it was an excellent day at the sea! We had many dolphins. In the morning, we saw a group of female Risso’s dolphins with calves and then we encountered a group of pilot whales and bottlenose dolphins very active. 

In the afternoon, we had more Risso’s dolphins but this time, they were a group with some males and we also encountered bottlenose dolphins very curious about our boat.
