13.04.2017 – Mirror Sea
Today our guests enjoyed a beautiful day on the ocean. The sun was shining and the ocean showed his best side. We had the so-called “MIRROR SEA”! This is of course only a new word creation from your guide, yet the ocean just looked like this. And amongst this flat and very, very blue sea we had these amazingly gorgeous Common dolphins which swam in the bow of Ribeira Brava. It felt almost there was no above or underneath the water. A magnificent experience! On our way back we met a school of Bottlenose dolphins but they were widely distributed and went their path. However, for a little while we had a great and close encounter! During the afternoon we saw as well Bottlenose dolphins and many, many, Portuguese-man-of-war in mini format.
