How do you want to summarize such a trip? Very diversified, impressive, lively, calm, touching, majestic … and to whom may these adjectives apply? Bottlenose dolphins (a small group, which behaved calm), a huge pod of Atlantic Spotted dolphins, which were active and lively … the four Sperm whales were surely very majestic! Not to forget: Cory`s Shearwaters; Loggerhead turtle; Flying fish. What was more impressive and touching? ALL!
During the afternoon trip a Sperm whale lifted his giant tale out of the water, when he dived. If we observe a tale lift we can be sure the animal is gone for a long time, but surprisingly he came up after five minutes just to dive a second time and granted us again with this amazing sight.
And like always we would like to ask you for a little task in form of signing our online petition as a little “Thank you” for all you experienced with these beautiful animals. You will find them under marine protection.
