Physeter macrocephalus

Heute sahen wir zwei Mal Tümmler (morgens und nachmittags), Fleckendelfine (morgens) und Pottwale (nachmittags). Langsame Annäherung an die Cetaceen (Waltiere), je vorsichtiger und langsamer wir uns nähern umso mehr sehen wir ohne die Tiere zu stressen. . .

Stenella frontalis

Today we saw twice bottlenose dolphins (in the morning and the afternoon), atlantic spotted dolphins (morning) and sperm whales (afternoon). Slowly approaching to the cetacean, as more careful we are, as more we have to observe without stressing the animals . . .

Tursiops truncatus (baby) 10:33

Tursiops truncatus 16:19

Hoje vimos duas vezes roazes (de manha e á tarde), golfinhos pintados (de manha) e cachalotes (á tarde). Aproximação devagarinho para os cetáceos, de mais cuidadoso nos somos, de mais vamos usufruir sem stress para os animais.

    Is it possible to make reservations in advance? We are planning to visit Madeira during 14 – 28 of August and would love to be at sea to spot whales and dolphins with you! .

      Hi Mariko,
      August is the high season on madeira island and as well on the ocean. Our boat only takes 12 passengers and so it is good to book in advance. Best is by mail info(at)lobosonda.com or in the beginning of your holiday by phone 00351 968 400 980.
      See you on the “Ribeira Brava” 😉 Claudia

      Hi Paul, we saw 4 close together, 1 a bit behind and our spotter saw more 2 closer to shore. There might have been even more, that we didn’t saw, but fore shore there were 7 sperm whales passing. All were swimming to the west and so they passed Paul do Mar and your sunny houses 😉
