|26-09-2019| Sperm whale watching Azores and hundreds of dolphins South of Faial and Pico islands

Updated: Sep 30, 2019

On this day we saw a pod of Sperm whales (Physeter macrocephalus) in the South of the channel between Faial and Pico islands. In the morning the whales were in pairs and trios. Despite one breach far away, we saw the animals resting at the surface or shallow diving. In the afternoon, they had gone altogether in one single group of 6-7 individuals composed of adult females (one of them with a very particular white patch), juveniles and a small calf.

During the day, we also saw two species of dolphins: Short-beaked common dolphins (Delphinus delphis) in the morning and Atlantic spotted dolphins (Stenella frontalis) in the afternoon. The common dolphins were feeding and the Atlantic spotted dolphins were resting, socializing and mating.

Thank you for joining our team. You can enjoy and share the pictures that our biologist Maria took during the trip.
