|08-06-2019| Sperm whale day

The pod of female Sperm whales (Physeter macrocephalus) that we had been watching was still at the South of #Faial Island so there we went, this time next to #CasteloBranco or the "White Castle rock", moving towards South of #Horta, so we had #MontedaGuia on the background

The animals were diving after squid, and resting at the surface for 5-10 minutes.

The pod was distributed in pairs and single individuals.

We could see 7 tails and took pictures of all of them.

It was an other productive and amazing fluke day!
