As you know we are in the season of the baleen whales, they are passing here in the in the Azores right now, going north direction, spending the summer in cold waters where they have more food available so they gain enough fat for the winter.
Due to that on the last days we have had some cool visits from these animals. Last one was from a fin whale (Balaenoptera physalus) that was very quiet and we enjoyed the company for the time! When we were almost leaving the whale exhaled and with the blow created a beautiful rainbow, it was magical!
As we still had time we saw a group of Common Dolphins (Delphinus delphis) very active and hunting and to end a juvenile Sperm Whale (Physeter macrocephalus), but under the sea was another world that we couldn’t see as we could hear more Sperm Whales with the hydrophone.
Hope you enjoyed, bye!
