|10082020| Sperm whales close to home

Today the day started with some clouds and bad light, so it was really difficult for our spotters to find some whales.


But after an hour of waiting, we had good news! Two sperm whales (Physeter macrocephalus) sighted and on the south of #Faialisland, close to home!


When we arrived at the area we saw at first two, then three and then four!

One sperm whale that was a bit more far away was the first to deep dive and then three whales that were together and close to boat, dove all of them at the same time. Three cool flukes!


The photos from the tails are going to be added to our photo ID catalogue, so we can figure out if these whales are seen here in the Azores for a long time or if they are new in the area.


The sperm whales dove and we went to see a group of striped dolphins (Stenella coeruleoalba). They were so fast!

The dolphins were not very comfortable with us so with didn't stayed long.


After the dolphins, we went to see more sperm whales! At least we saw more 4 different animals. It was full of sperm whales!


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


See you soon!
