Always ready for fun and play, this specie is known by our team as "the clowns". Mostly seen in Summer, they enjoy following boats that are moving fast, and to play among them selves and with us, giving us amazing moments when they decide to “fly”. Being this friendly, this is one of the species we can swim with here in Madeira.
This is one of the two species that we have a local population. We can see them through all year, either the local animals or the migratory. Although this is a very well known dolphin, because of Flipper, our interactions with them made us nickname them “the cat”.
This is quite a rare specie to observe in Madeira. Their favourite food is cephalopods, being that the main purpose of their visits. One interesting curiosity about them, is that when they are born they present a grey colour, and as they grow older it changes to white, earning a very cool nickname: “Michael Jackson”.
