|04-06-2019| Cetaceans, reptiles, birds and invertebrates in the Azores

Updated: Sep 30, 2019

The sightings on this Expedition tour comprised a large pod of Common dolphins (Delphinus delphis), a group of Sperm whales (Physeter macrocephalus) that we would see the following days was observed, with a large female raising her tail very high and descending gently, as in a cinematographic mode (see picture below).

There was time to watch a Loggerhead turtle (Caretta caretta), Cory's Shearwaters (Calonectris borealis) and an aggregation of Portuguese man o'war (Physalia physalis), here represented by several individuals attached together. Bottlenose dolphins were also sighted in the end of the whale watching azores trip although no images were taken as the animals were very ellusive.
