16.06.2017 – Dolphins in front of Cabo Girão

16.06.2017 – Dolphins in front of Cabo Girão

Guests of both morning tours observed active Atlantic spotted dolphins at close range. The participants of the Stenella trip found besides this, also Common dolphins which were heading in an eastern direction. Thanks to our spotter Higino, we saw them in front of Cabo Girao. Which is THE landmark/emblem of the south-west coast, just a few kilometers behind Encumeada canyon. Cabo Girao is the second highest cliff and drops down at 580 m in the Ocean. The worlds highest dop off cliff into the sea exists at the Farörer Islands, Kap Enniberg with 754 m altitude.
