Today we found a pod of 6 to 7 Sperm whales (Physeter macrocephalus). The animals were not feeding but socializing.

Some animals were alone but at the end, several animals came together, so at least 5 animals were at the South of Pico island.

There was a juvenile that joined one of the females at the surface.

After watching the largest animals on the planet with teeth, we headed to a big pod of over 50 Atlantic-spotted dolphins (Stenella frontalis), also in the South.
