|09-08-2019 2pm| Sperm whales and Atlantic-spotted dolphins in the South of Faial

In this 2pm trip we saw the same pod of Sperm whales (Physeter macrocephalus) that we had seen in the morning. This pod has been here for several weeks already. We can identify the individuals thaks to their marks and tail shapes. They were diving and one breached twice.

Atlantic spotted dolphins (Stenella frontalis) were around too and we saw them twice. Unlike the Sperm whales, which are residents, this species come in summer time only.

Here you can find some of the pictures that our guide Maria took during the trip. Enjoy and share! Thank you for your preference.
