08.05.2017 – Before the rainy days
It’s May and it´s flower festival in Madeira island! The weather seems really not normal and it makes our life quite difficult. It will get worse in the next days and as we expected, more wind and rain. Fortunately we could go out today in the morning and were lucky to find a big pod of Bottlenose dolphins heading east. The dolphins loved the waves, which were a bit of a challenge for our boat and for some guests. You all did very well!!! And the dolphins as well, breaching, coming into our bow and simply enjoying the movement of the ocean. On Stenella they had even more luck, as they observed in addition Common dolphins and Striped dolphins.
