30.07.2017 – Eight turtles
Today we had peak of Loggerhead turtle sightings. We found eight of them, mostly very small ones. These sea turtles are real masters in voyaging through the ocean. Many of the Loggerhead turtles we see here have their birth beach along the coast of Florida, Virginia and Carolina. We saw as well marine mammals, from far away a group of Blainville’s Beaked whales, very close Atlantic Spotted dolphins. The last ones showed their best side, many jumps and a lot of dolphins riding in the bow of Ribeira Brava.
