04.10.2016 – What happend Senhor Luis?
This morning we went another time out on the ocean. The sea was calm and the Atlantic Spotted dolphins, first only a few, the more and more, were very pleasurable. All well that ends well! After a while we left this situation behind and went further out to find new adventures. Suddenly we hear a shouting from behind. Our Captain doesn’t speak English, German or French but he is very good in communication with his hands. A Sperm whale breached in a distance! At this point it was over with cozy relaxation. The Sperm whale breach three times! A bit later we were able to observe mother and calf closer to us while they rested. Such a nice experience! And how nice to see a hard boiled captain after so many years of experience is still reaction like that.
