Claudia’s Eindrücke: Im Moment sehen wir viele TROPISCHE WALE (Brydewale) und aktive GROSSE TÜMMLER. Auch heute gab es diese beiden Arten zu bewundern. Auf der ersten Nachmittagsfahrt gab es magische Momente, weil der Wal unsere Stenella in zügigem Tempo begleitete und sich dabei drehte. Am späten Nachmittag haben wir gleich 3 dieser TROPISCHEN WALE gesichtet, einer davon mit “Mundgeruch”. Und am Vormittag ist einer dieser Wale sogar gebreacht, schnell und unerwartet erhoben sich 15-20 Tonnen aus dem Meer. Fatima hat ihn zwar eingefangen 😉 aber etwas unscharf. Was bleibt ist eine magische Erinnerung.

Und Lobosonda beschließt den Monat Juli bei beiden Booten mit 100% Sichtungserfolg und somit behauptet die Stenella die ganzen 7 Monate in 2015 hundertprozentig. Magisch!!!

Claudia’s impressions: At this time we are seeing a lot of TROPICAL WHALES (Bryde’s whale) and active BOTTLENOSE DOLPHINS. Today was no exception, we saw the two species again. On the first afternoon trip we had magical moments on board, the whale accompanied us in a good pace, and always turning himself. On the late afternoon we saw 3 of those TROPICAL WHALES, with a a very intense smell lingering in the air (wich can happen with whales). In the morning the whales even breached. In a quick and unexpected move our guests witnessed a 15-20 Ton whale jump out of the ocean 😉 the pictures are a little blurred. Bt it was a magical moment.

And Lobosonda finished July with 100% successful sightings on both of our boats, Stenella has had 100% success on our sightings for 7 MONTHS, so the whole year of 2015. Again.. Magical!!!
