Common dolphins have the ability to make our day happier but for the last days, we’ve been sighting them much less frequently than usual… and when we sighted them it was in mixed groups with the striped dolphins. Two species with quite different behaviours together in the same pod makes every sighting different! Together with the striped dolphins and the common dolphins we’ve been spotting numerous calves.
The sperm whales have also been present in the major part of our trips, and with the help of our hydrophone, we can make our sightings better and more respectful. We’ve been mostly with female groups accompanied by their growing juveniles and calves.
are still passing on the south coast of Pico. Their most observed
behaviour by us is of travelling, but they leave us completely amazed as
we navigate along with them or even when we are waiting for them to
surface in-between their dives. Everyone onboard stays searching over
the surroundings for the big high blow that by then will be almost
breaking through the water’s surface!
