Good sea but poor visibility

One of our zodiac boats with common dolphins

Our catamaran "Quatro Ventos"

The weather was good today. Sunny, but with some mist. With these conditions it is very difficult for our vigia (onshore lookout) to spot animals far fromt he coastline. The colors of the land and the sky were the same greyish-blue colour: a problem when someone is trying to spot something with big binoculars. On both of our tours today we ended up with pilot whales, Risso’s dolphins and common dolphins. In the end it was another day of good sightings, even with poor visiblity!
