|09072020| Sperm whales, spotted dolphins and a loggerhead turtle in Faial, Pico - Azores

Updated: Jul 18

The team wants you to have the best experience, so sometimes when the sea is not good to go out we will reschedule the trip. It was what happened with this expedition and it was worth the wait!


On our second attempt, on the way to whales, we saw a group of spotted dolphins (Stenella frontalis) and a loggerhead turtle (Caretta caretta), popping up her head to breathe before diving.


We saw 4 different sperm whales (Physeter macrocephalus), 2 females from a group close to the coastline and other 2 males further away. All of them deep dive so we manage to see the tails and add them to regional catalogues.


Already on our way back to the harbour, again the spotted dolphins! This time they perform some really cool jumps.


Thank you for joining our team! Enjoy and share the photos from our expedition.


See you soon!
