Hi everyone!

In the last trips we had the chance to encounter thousands of dolphins hunting fish: Common, Bottlenose and Atlantic Spotted Dolphins were present in our waters in large numbers. In particular, we spent some time in the vicinity of a super-pod of Atlantic Spotted Dolphins (Stenella frontalis). It was impossible to estimate a precise number but lets say that the whole pod took several minutes to cross our way and it was stretching on a front of about one mile!!!

 

 

Moreover, we had another encounter with a couple of Sei Whales (Balaenoptera borealis) that are hanging around in our waters since yesterday. Here you can see one of them coming to check out Terra Azul boat really close!

In the Atlantic Ocean is better to be always ready for unexpected events like this!!! 😀 😀 😀
