Whale Watching on Pico Island

Six meter long rigid hull inflatables are used, allowing for safe and fast access to the whales and dolphins. The boat size does not disturb the mammals. Using the original look-out system called "Vigia", a surveyor observes the sea, with the help of binoculars, on the lookout for cetaceans. The Sperm Whales, the largest and most numerous in these waters are readily identified throughout photographs taken of the undersides of their flukes when diving. The other toothed whales frequently sighted are Northern Bottlenose Whales, Pilot Whales, Orcas and Sowerby's Beaked Whales. The dolphins sighted regularly in these waters are Common Atlantic Bottlenose, Risso, Atlantic Spotted and Striped.
