Photographer's Note

Until the end of the 19th century, American whalers would come to Pico to catch sperm whales and to recruit harpooners, though it would not be long before the islanders took to whaling themselves using their speedy rowing boats. Ending in a royal battle between man and sea creature which would so often end in tragedy. These days Pico is regaining its whaling tradition though in a more peaceful way-in the form of two museums which tell the story of whaling and display the delicate artwork performed by mariners using the teeth and bones of sperm whales. Boat trips also take the visitor out to sea to view the sperm whales and the graceful dolphins.
Hope you like it.

Mαrcio Costa
