Beaked whales are very rare animals to see, they are whales but look more like dolphins. Not a lot is known about beaked whales. There are 23 different species of beaked whales that belong to the same family. These animals are not well understood since they are deep divers and are unable to live in captivity. Their social structure is not really well understood. In the Azores, scientists are not certain about the abundance of these animals or if they are resident or migratory. All we are certain about is that these deep divers are rare and it is something really special to see.
The morning tour was really a success that gave a taste to our whale watchers about the importance of marine mammals.
