Dolphins & Whales in the Azores

There are phenomenal numbers of dolphins and whales in the Azorean waters. The islands are a major meeting place for both humans and cetaceans & attract scientists, naturalists, international photographers and divers as well as some tourists. It is also a port of call for transatlantic yachtsmen.Leaping Risso Judith Scott v2

The Azores is one of the best places in the world to see an abundance of dolphins and whales – the many different resident and transient species of dolphin are seen here in what is sometimes referred to as “The Cetacean cross-roads of the world.” It is not uncommon to meet pods of dolphin of between 50 and 200, leaping with exuberance and vitality around the boats or meet 5 different species on one trip!
