Sperm Whale

  • Highlights:

    They can dive for as long as 1 hour and 30 minutes!

These amazing animals can be seen around Madeira all year round.
They use our warm and calm sea to dive and eat, socialise, and procreate. Their dive can last up to 1 hour and 30 minutes !
Adult subjects they can be up to 17 to 20 meters long !
Usually, we use their water projection to locate and identify them, as they need to blow in order to breathe. They present a rough grey-brown body and a big smooth head. They tail-fin is triangular shaped and we can usually see it popping out of the water as they are diving.
