Мой юбилейный 500-тый пост будет о мечтах! Я давно и долго мечтал увидеть китов. До последнего не верил, что получится ее осуществить. Хотя билеты были на остров Пику были куплен ещё пол года назад, но это скорее всего была лотерея. Буквально пару дней назад здесь бушевал ураган Лесли. Но к нашему приезду, Атлантический океан полностью успокоился, вышло солнце и.... И конечно же в самый первый день нашего пребывания, я и мои друзья отправились на whales watching. До сих пор не могу проверить в нашу удачу! Мы видели китов!!! Да, а именно кашалотов! Они периодически выплывали подышать, и даже с малышами. На фото справа видно фонтанчик 🐳 и спину большой самки. А на фоне - удивительный и невообразимый остров Пику, что в прямом переводе означает пик. Это вторая по величине гора на планете (если считать с ее основания). Большая часть под водой. Спасибо, Пику! Ещё одна мечта осуществилась! 🐳🐬🐋 #mcities #azores #whaleswatching #whales #spermwhales #pico #cwazores #happiness #dreamcometrue #dreams #peace ✌ at Atlantic/Azores

Different kind of whale watching in the Azores. Watching this baby sperm whale during the sunset tour was the peak! #cwazores

This trip to the Azores made me fall in love with dolphins. These Rossi’s dolphins were so fun to watch. #cwazores

#Repost @magnuslundgrenphotography with @get_repost ・・・ BLUE ADVENTURE. I am back in Sweden now after some great adventures around the island Pico in the Azores. What a trip great trip we had with huge blue sharks at "camera scratching" distance, aggregating Chilean devil rays, eagle rays watching their cave, schooling barracudas, a krill infested nightdive and the last magic day whatching the sperm whales and swimming with Atlantic spotted dolphins in a calm ocean. . Thanks to all the brave divers joining in, and to Dania, Enrique and Caspar @cwazores and the rest of their great staff, and of course to @scubatravel.se who, as always, set it up so nicely for the whole group. . CONSERVATION. Diving with the sharks in a respectful way is actually creating a real value locally (flights, hotel nights, restaurant visits and dive operators and more…) and I think if you ask the sharks it is a great alternative to the 100 meter plus long fishing boats from Spain coming over to the Azores to fill up with apex predators like blue sharks. . IUCN REDLIST STATUS: Near threatened. The Blue Shark (Prionace glauca) is taken in large numbers, an estimated 20 million individuals annually, mainly as bycatch but also as a targeted species. Little is known about the overall population and many catches are unreported. There is concern over the removal of such large numbers of keystone predator from the oceanic ecosystem. . #scubatravel #cwazores #blueshark #shark #blue #pico #azores #expedition #photography #underwater #mares #iucn #redlist #nearthreatened at Madalena, Azores

Сегодня мы наблюдали за китами. Нам повезло, сейчас конечно не сезон для китов, но мы видели дитёныша кашалота 🐋, и он даже подплыл к нашей лодке совсем близко! Спасибо всей команде #CWazores . Мы почти 3 часа болтались в море, выжидая появления чуда, и оно свершилось! Как же прекрасно, что азорцы свой китобойный промысел смогли переориентировать на туризм и наблюдение за этими невероятными существами. at CW Azores

LOOKING FOR DEVILS. The coming week a group of divers join me in an attempt to socialize with the impressive Chilean devil rays. Every summer, roughly June until October, Chilean devil rays (Mobula tarapacana) gather in large schools above mighty seamounts around the Azores. They are cleary in some sort of social mode and frequently approach divers and swim around them, sometimes for an hour. It an epic experience and the rays can reach impressive four meters across. . These oceanic wanderers are the one of the least known of the mobula rays, these sea mounts is one of only a few locations where these rays gather in large numbers. I will report on our progress. Let us hope for blue sky and calm sea! . #mobula #chileanmobularay #chilean #mobularay #ray #elasmobranchia #social #mystic #gathering #azores #theazores #pico #cwazores #portugal #atlantic #conservation #savetheocean #magnuslundgren #magnuslundgrenphotography #nikon #naturephotography #exploretocreate #picoftheday #exposureunderwater #scubatravel #nikon #underwater_world_ #padi #paditv at Azores

I will never get over having dolphins surround the boat I’m on 😍 at Madalena, Azores

Strong contender for the best moment of my life: floating on a dingy in the bluest water I’ve ever seen surrounded by these divine creatures. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ — ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, I’ve really peaked in Pico. Whale watching is a must, primarily because the island is best seen by water (similar to how New York City is even more stunning when you can see it from beyond, like Brooklyn), but also because whales are cool & dolphins will chase you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ — ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We used @cwazores in Madalena & they were rockstars. at Pico Island

This guy was just peeping out of his hole, sussing out the situation. His friend was bolder though, and was out and about, hunting over the rocks. at Madalena, Azores

I came face to face with this beautiful mama-to-be... rays carry their babies on their backs, so it’s fairly easy to spot when one is pregnant 💙 at Madalena, Azores

An incredibly lucky moment! Being able to hop in the water with this pod of Atlantic Spotted Dolphins was such a privilege! They’re surprisingly shy though so as soon as I got in they all dived. They’re so fast, they were out of sight in a few seconds, but it was so special to have this encounter 💙🐬💙 at Princess Alice Bank.

Normally I am not a fan of Triggerfish, but we had two of these Grey Triggerfish come and investigate us in an unusually non-aggressive and curious way - it must be outside of nesting time for them. at Madalena, Azores

Today was amazing! We left Madalena at half past 1pm, during the trip to where the Atlantic spotted dolphins were seen last we saw some false-killer whales💙 then we swam, I and a friend stayed like 10 minutes or more in the water, with all of the dolphins around! Then we saw the fish bowl and atlantic spotted and striped dolphins together with a sei whale and birds. They are one of the most beautiful animals in the world. I passed with them one of the best moments of my life💙 WILD AND FREE💙 FREE AS THEY HAVE TO BE💙 #cwazores #dolphinswimming #dolphins #dolphin #spotteddolphins #atlanticspotteddolphin #atlanticocean #pico #picoisland #azores #acores #açores #portugal #underwater #beauty #beautiful #blog #azoresblog #love #snorkeling #scubagram #icanhardlybreathe #breathe #lifestyle #blogger at Atlantic/Azores

Princess Alice in the Azores was definitely the scariest briefing I’ve ever had 😳 but it was an amazing dive spot. Going onto the top of the pinnacle was awesome, and although the mobula didn’t come very close, there were plenty around!💙 at Princess Alice Bank.
