Sperm Whale and Diver, The Azores

In the deep blue waters of the mid-Atlantic near the volcanic islands of the Azores, a sperm whale comes eye to eye with a diver. Its curiosity aroused by the human figure, the whale stopped swimming and slowly rotated to this vertical position. After a few minutes of eye to eye contact it rolled over and began a slow descent into the abyss.

  1. Thanks for this post. Azores is located in the Atlantic ocean. This island is a must visit. This place has a subtropical climate. You can find amazing flora and fauna in this island. The main attractions are watching loggerhead turtles and fishes like marlin and swordfish. The other best attraction is the giant whales. Whalers make use of traditional boats and hand harpoons. May to October is the best time to visit this place.For more details refer Azores whale watching
