Hello everyone!

What an amazing day today!

We started off with a small group of Risso’s Dolphins with a calf next to its mother. Then we went to see the Atlantic Spotted Dolphins and the group was really big, maybe 80 to 100 dolphins and lots of Cory’s Shearwaters, they are almost gone to go to the southern hemisphere.

Then we went to see a Sperm Whale in front of Lagoa. We waited a little bit because it was on a dive and then after some minutes we saw a big blow coming out of the water! We stayed there for some minutes to appreciate the view and then it went again on a deep dive.

To end the tour we went to see our friends Common Dolphins! They also had some calves on the group which was really nice!

I hope you had enjoye, see you at Terra Azul!
