During our morning trip, with the amazing New Scientist group, we were able to spot Sperm whales (Physeter macrocephalus), Loggerhead sea turtle (Caretta caretta) and Portuguese man o' war (Physalia physalis; including a boat transect to count the individuals with the help of the group). We also collected floating plastic to observe the living organisms in the microscope.

During our afternoon trip we were able to spot the Humpback Whale (Megaptera novaeangliae), Risso's dolphins (Grampus griseus), Portuguese man o' war (Physalia physalis), Cory's Shearwater (Calonectris borealis) and the common tern (Sterna hirundo).

Hope you have enjoyed your trip and see you again on another opportunity!
