Sightings April 2018

Here you can see the sightings received during April 2018.

Nautical activities in Galicia are providing us some good sightings last months! Sailing of course, but diving and kayaking, and this month, rowing! Girls from Club de Remo Puebla have seen bottlenose dolphins very close to the shore inside the harbour while training in A Pobra, and during three rowing competitions: one organized by Club de Remo Mecos in A Lanzada; the second organized by Club de Remo Rianxo; and the last during the Rowing Spanish Championship organized by Sociedade Deportiva Samertolameu. Dolphins while rowing!!

One of our Azorean partners, Pure Sail, has seen common dolphins while sailing around the archipelago.

Do you know where blue whales are right now??? Some of them are passing by the Azores during spring. And one of our partners has seen it close to the Azores after 19 days of sailing from the Caribbean. Amazing sighting!!

We have received also a fin whale sighted in February by People Of Hope sailing off Mauritania.

And apart from these, we have received a lot of sightings of the last months made by our new partner Picarus Sailing Club around Tenerife (Canary Islands). They have seen pilot whales, bottlenose dolphins, common dolphins and Atlantic spotted dolphins. Check the map here.

Species of this month: bottlenose dolphins, common dolphins, fin whale, blue whale, pilot whales, bottlenose dolphins, Atlantic spotted dolphins

Sightings September 2017

This month we focused on Galicia. We have received two sightings of bottlenose dolphins, and even not directly reported to Sail&Whale, journals and newspapers have shown two amazing sightings in the area: two blue whales! They are not frequently sighted around this area, but for sure those sightings will provide new clues to better understaind their migration routes!
