Sperm whale tails in São Miguel and surfing dolphins in Pico

On the way to the south…Today the Sperm whales that we saw were on the west coast of São Miguel, are we going to have more sightings of this majestic species here around the south? Who knows, they are wild animals and we can’t control them, the only thing that we can do is going to have a look when they are close to shore. Also, we had sightings in the morning of common dolphins feeding with Cory’s shearwaters, and our zodiac boat spotted a group of bottlenose dolphins.

A surfing day in Pico Island. To start our tour we head straight to a group of spotted dolphins. They were super curious about our boat and also on feeding. After this encounter we spent some time with common dolphins, the dolphins were surfing the waves, showing all their skills! To finish our day and with the help of our lookout, we went far away to see the sperm whales.
