It looks like summer is getting to an end.. but with amazing sightings!
In the morning we sighted very big groups of bottlenose dolphins and of common dolphins. Both full of babies! And after having the four seasons in half an hour (sun, wind, waves and heavy rain), we found the sperm whales with a huge sun shining in the blue sky! It was the same group which we saw yesterday!
In the afternoon, the four resident species in a fantastic tour. We started with common dolphins, bottlenose (very active), and heading to the area of whales, we found Risso’s dolphins! So things we learned from Rafa’s presentation on Wednesday were more than useful!
After waiting for a while, on the way back to Ponta Delgada, the sperm whales surprised us to finish this amazing afternoon. So good to be out at sea in days like today!
