|28082020| Huge pod of common dolphins

|ENG|


Another day with a flat sea!


Early morning and our spotter already had a position for a group of sperm whales (Physeter macrocephalus), so we went straight to find them.


We saw two different sperm whales and we believe one of them was pregnant!

The sperm whales have only one baby at a time and the gestation period can last between 13 to 15 months.


Close to the coast, we saw a huge pod of common dolphins (Delphinus delphis) with a lot of tiny babies, maybe with just a few weeks old!

At one point we had common dolphins on our right, left and back! The group had more than 200 animals!


Thank you to everyone that joined us! Enjoy and share the photos from our expeditions.


See you soon!

Mais um dia com mar calmo!


De manhã cedo e o vigia já tinha uma posição para um grupo de cachalotes (Physeter macrocephalus).


Vimos dois animais diferentes e acreditamos que um deles era uma fêmea e que estava grávida! Os cachalotes têm apenas uma cria de cada vez e o período de gestação pode durar entre 13 a 15 meses.


Já perto de costa, avistámos um grupo enorme de golfinhos comuns (Delphinus delphis) com crias bastante pequenas, provavelmente apenas com algumas semanas de idade!

A uma certa altura tinhamos golfinhos à nossa direita, à nossa esquerda e por trás de nós! Completamente rodeados! O grupo teria mais que 200 animais.


Muito obrigada por se terem juntado à nossa equipa!

Aproveitem e partilhem as fotografias da vossa expedição.

Vemo-nos em breve!
