|03-06-2019| Dolphins and Sperm whales in the South of Faial, Azores

Updated: Sep 30, 2019

Resident Bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) opened our sighting report. They were travelling in the South of Faial island.

There was a pod of Sperm whales (Physeter macrocephalus). It was composed by females. They were diving and we could catch their flukes for photo identification.

But not only tails, we could see the animals' bodies very well.

Some of them were diving in pairs.

And they showed synchronized flukes.

The group on board was amazed by the time we start going back to Horta's harbour.

Happy faces for the team
