Hello whale watchers!

What a morning today!! We started our tour with our budies Common dolphins (Delphinus delphis). The group was around 40 to 50 individuals and they were swimming around the area, not too fast but also not so calm and then, all of a sudden they started to swim really fast, which I think that they were probably looking for fish and found it.

Then we changed species. Also dolphins, residents but with a 2×1 promotion :p The Bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) and Risso’s dolphins (Grampus griseus) were swimming together. We didn’t stay long as our lookout had a big group of Sperm Whales in front of Ponta Delgada.

So off we went to see the Sperm Whales and it ws amazing…the calf was slapping the tail and making some jumps and then other sperm whale (adult) started to jump as well, they were making a festival of jumps, it was pretty amazing 🙂 .

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