Es bleibt weiter ruhig, wenig Gäste für den Monat September, also auch wenig Fahrten. In See stachen wir heute nur 2 mal, einmal mit der schnellen, einmal mit der gemuetlichen Variante.

Fatima, unser guide an Bord der Ribeira Brava berichtet:  “Wir erlebten heute Große Tümmler in schönster Wellentümmelmanier. Zu zweit, zu dritt, zu viert surften die Delfine in den Wellen, begleitet von unseren Begeisterungsrufen. Und als Zugabe gab es herrlichste Sprünge, auch gleich in der Doppel-und Dreierkombination. Es gab mehrere Schildkrötensichtungen, wobei eine dieser Panzertiere sehr kontaktfreudig war und zur näheren Besichtigung der Ribeira Brava näher ans Boot geschwommen kam. Und dann gab es noch ein USO- ein unidentifiziertes Schwimmobjekt – wir nehmen an es war ein Streifendelfin.

Claudia, der Speedboot guide kann von Bartenwalen (Brydewal eindeutig auf dem Foto zu sehen an den 3 Kopfleisten), Tümmlern mit einem Neugeborenen und von gemeinen Delfinen berichten. Jede Menge Gelbschnabelsturmtaucher, die nachts so schöne Konzerte geben wenn sie in ihre Nester zurückfliegen, waren um uns, denn es gab mal wieder ein richtig grosses Fressen. Guten Appetit und gute Nacht. 

It is still very calm around here, not so many “whale watchers” out there. So we aren’t going out as much as we liked. Today we only had 2 trips, one with “Stenella”, one with “Ribeira Brava”.

We saw bottlenose dolphins, in little groups of two, three or four, surfing the waves and also jumping individually or coordinated in groups. We also saw some sea turtles, one of them was very friendly, what it unusual. An then we also saw a USO – unidentified swimming objekt – we think it was a striped dolphin.

Claudia with the speed boat came back from some nice sightings: Bryde’s Whale, bottlenose dolphins with new borns and common dolphins. Many, many, many Cory’s Shearwater (the ones that give us spectacular concerts at night 😉 ) where around us, eating!

Por cá as coisas continuam muito calmas, temos poucos “whale watchers” de momento e em consequência também poucas viagens. Hoje tivemos duas viagens, uma mais rápida com o “Stenella” e outra mais lenta com o “Ribeira Brava”.

Vimos roazes, em pequenos grupos de dois, três e quatro que surfavam as ondas e espantaram os nossos clientes com saltos coordenados também em grupo. Também vimos algumas tartarugas, uma delas ,bem simpática, aproximou se do barco, o que é pouco comum nas tartaruga. Tivemos um avistamento que não sabemos ao certo o que era, mas a aposta vai para um golfinho pintado.

A Claudia voltou de uma viagem com o Stenella onde viram Baleia de Bryde, roazes com crias e golfinhos comuns. Muuuuuitas cagarras em alimentação, bom apetite e boa noite!
