Another day at sea, another first time for this 2021!
A different blow caught our attention today. The dark silhouette of a pointy dorsal fin does not lie: A Sei Whale (Balaenoptera borealis), the first sighted this year, was slowly cruising in front of Ribeira Quente.
Pods of Common Dolphins (Delphinus delphis) were also encountered, even in company of Striped Dolphins (Stenella coeruleoalba)!
But what really dominated our seascape today were the subtle blows of Sperm Whales (Physeter macrocephalus). Whales were foraging and moving along the South Coast of São Miguel from West to East, turning the calm Ocean in a minefield of blows.
Weather is looking nice and we cannot wait to see what tomorrow will bring!
