Navigating the water during sunny days is always exciting, not only is there nice weather for us to enjoy but when it’s sunny it means… chances increase of seeing the Loggerhead turtles (Caretta caretta).
Turtles are marine reptiles that also enjoy very much to sunbathe and today, “I kid you not”, we saw 8 turtles while navigating.
We know that there are a lot of turtle lovers that enjoy reading our blog so we wanted to introduce to you one of their favourite snacks!
These Cnidarians are truly beautiful and when at the surface, become easy to spot by the turtles.
In the morning a travelling group of Risso’s dolphins (Grampus griseus) passed in front of the islet of Vila Franca do Campo, we captured the moment and this family was nothing but “tight” if you get my joke 😉
In the area we sighted as well a huge pod of Bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) with a lot of young individuals and babies. Our Skypper Tiago calls it “The Dolphin Kindergarten” so funny, the pod was constructed of around 100 individuals.
and to top the ice- cream with some cherries, we encountered two Sperm whales logging (resting) at the surface and then getting a bit curious, check it out !!!
So we are always so marvelled with all the Atlantic Ocean offers!!! Join us for more adventures =).
