Sperm whale sightings in both islands!

Today we had a long day out in the ocean. In the morning we first traveled east to see a large group of bottlenose dolphins. Then, one of our boats had to travel further west in order to  spot a sperm whale. In the afternoon all our boats managed to see the same species that we saw in the morning, but closer.

In Pico, we were expecting rain according to the forecast. Luckily at the end we didn’t have that much. So we made the most and found a group of risso’s dolphins. We also saw 4 sperm whale tails, as well as striped dolphins swimming really fast. By the end of the tour we saw a group of bottlenose dolphins very curious with our boat.
