The East wind blows, the waves are a reminder of how the ocean changes from one day to another. Today the morning tour was amazing. Common dolphins bow riding the eastern wind waves! Dolphins do so in order to gain speed and save energy, these marine smart animals have truly understood their environment and use it to their advantage.

Before we navigated to see the beautiful common dolphins, we found a loggerhead turtle. Loggerhead turtles are widely distributed, found in Atlantic, Pacific and Indian ocean. The loggerhead turtle has a very low reproductive rate. These marine reptiles, lay and average of four egg clutchers and then no longer produce eggs for three years. Reaching their sexual maturity between 17-33 years and living up to 67 years.

Seeing a loggerhead turtle is always a beautiful amazing thing. Another great day in the middle of the Atlantic ocean, for animals and whale-wathcers.
