On board the Ribeira Brava we had today again an international selection of guests. Besides Skipper Luis from Madeira (Crew) there were french, english and german visitors with us. All with high expectations of observing marine mammals in the wild. But unfortunately today we had to be satisfied with only a short “intermezzo” of some Atlantic spotted dolphins. They showed up close to our boat, but didn’t followed us further. Eventhough we tried hard, it wasn’t possible to have other observations of animals. Also this is one aspect of nature, following it own rules and rhythms, and we can only respect this.
