|20230411| Good morning with sei whales
What a great trip! Thank you for supporting our research and helping us collect data on three beautiful species of cetaceans: sei whale (Balaenoptera borealis), common dolphin (Delphinus delphis), and bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus).
As the wind increased, we traveled near the coast of Faial island to find three sei whales slowly transiting not far from the boat. Then, we were granted with a good sighting of common dolphins and bottlenose dolphins searching for prey and approaching the boat doing bow riding.
We did a coastal tour of Porto Pim Bay and appreciated the beautiful view, in which we also had the opportunity to see the Portuguese Man O’War (Physalia physalis).
