14.02.2020- Preluded swell

Arctic storms have been quite frequent during the beginning of winter, pushing some considerable ocean swells through the North Atlantic, only stopping at the coastlines, taking an average of 5 days to arrive here in Madeira. During our afternoon trip we could already see and feel the passing of these moving masses of water while observing a pod of Short-finned pilot whales (Globicephala macrorhynchus) and a rather lonesome Bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus).
