Blainville’s beaked whale

  • Blainville's Beaked Whale

    Mesoplodon densirostris

We mainly meet them in the summertime, although observation is rare when compared to other species. Usually, they feel safer deeper, especially when boats are around. 

 They are relatively small; approximately 4,5 meters long. Their body is long, its colour can change from dark grey to black with a white belly. Their head ends with a beak and males present a pair of teeth on the lower jaw.

Blainville’s beaked whales are peaceful and shy but we love them just the same!
