Baleen Whales heading to breeding grounds!

Hello everyone!

On today’s tour we went to Faial da Terra to spot Sei Whales (Balaenoptera borealis). At the beginning we spot only one but with eyes open, a few minutes later  we spot one more! They were heading East direction on their migration pattern.


Then we head to a big group of Atlantic Spotted Dolphins (Stenella frontalis), they were very active, hunting the fish with Cory’s Shearwaters! We could also see a ball of fish close to the school. On our way back we enjoyed the view and the beautiful sea…it was like gliding on a mirror!

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