This expedition led us south of Pico Island, with the spotter Carlos Vigia da Furna, had found a pod of sperm whales. A large female kep jumping after our arrival, giving a spectacular and unique show.




A younger female, on the images below surfaced for a few blows after diving withouth fluking.



The trip was to be completed with a large pod of 20-30 Risso dolphins surfing the waves. A calve with birth marks was observed, although not photographed. This is a great sign for our resident population of Rissos.
