June is special here in the Azores, not only good weather warms everyone’s hearts and people relax everyday at the beach, but June means “Family” for the Sperm Whales (Physeter macrocephalus).
Why do you say that? You may wonder…
Well is not that June is a magical month where Sperm Whales decide to grace us with their presence, is just that the animals form great family bonds during this time of the year (if not the whole year) and we can observe them quite often just logging at the surface.
Yet Sperm Whales and locals are not the only ones enjoying the nice temperatures, check out this cute Common Dolphin (Delphinus delphis) just grabbing a snack! Our skipper captured the photo at the right moment don’t you agree…
During our morning tour we sighted as well the traveling Risso’s Dolphins (Grampus griseus). I guess getting older for a Risso’s Dolphin is quite graceous since being this beautiful is not to bad, I must say.
We could not be more excited to have you guys on board today with us during our morning and afternoon trip as well, how lovely was it watching all those Sperm Whales diving.
Let’s see how the rest of the month unfolds, stay tuned 😉
