This morning we had the first whale watching tour and also the first whale encounters of 2019! We found a group of sperm whales, making it the best start to the year that we could have hoped for.
The sperm whales we encountered today
In total we encountered 4 sperm whales, including two adults side by side and a smaller juvenile nearby. They were alternating being up and sinking just under the water's surface, but we got to see them well every time they were at the surface, as they were very calm. What a great start to what we hope will be another fantastic year of whale and dolphin watching in the Azores!
