|03082020| Baby sperm whale

Today it was a windy day!


Today we went to the north of #Faialisland to look for sperm whales (Physeter macrocephalus) :)

On our way to the sperm whales that the spotter was seeing we saw 2 blows!


We got closer to the area where we saw the blows, at first we saw a sperm whale with more or less 8 meters long (they can measure 15 to 18 meters) and after a few minutes a baby sperm whale appears! The baby sperm whales normally are with their mom or they can also stay with their aunties. The baby can nurse from both.


After being some minutes at the surface the adult sperm whale deep dove and the baby also dove, but only stayed underwater for a little while because it still doesn't have the capacity to dive so deep.


Thank you to everyone that joined us! Enjoy and share the photos from our expeditions.


See you soon!
