03.07.2016 – Pirouette

The different pods of Atlantic Spotted dolphins were quite active today on all trips. In the morning they made unbelievable leaps to welcome our boat, Stenella. We had all kinds of leaps – with splash-landings on their bellies just beside the boat and some real high leaps against the sun, so that Fatima couldn’t take any pics. Yes! And who made the pirouette? One of the Pilot whales, not in the air but in the bow of the Stenella. Amazing!!!
