Azores: Pico Island – Blue Whales

Blue whales are the largest animals on earth at 30 meter/100 ft in length and 170 tons in weight. We got to within just meters of two of them (mother and calf?) in just a small rib boat. They are truly magnificent animals, not blue but rather grey in color with spotted backs. The blue is how they look underwater – bright almost fluorescent blue. Anion her absolute must-see animal checked off the list!
