The season 2020 has ended

The summer holidays are over and Tarifa's streets have been empty since the beginning of September. We have therefore also closed down for this year.

Despite the short season we had many special sightings. We hope that the situation will become normal by the next season and can't wait to take you out to see the whales again from the 26th of March 2021 on.

See you soon in Tarifa, Katharina Heyer and the firmm team


Puzzle is a mother. We have known her for some years now, during which she raised different babies. She is a very social animal and likes to stay in the middle of the family. Occasionally she follows her offspring to the firmm boat, but generally keeps some distance.

Adopt Puzzle

Support our work with a symbolic sponsorship! Together we can achieve that more and more people are rethinking their actions and are committed to a more responsible treatment of the oceans.

This is how we have experienced Puzzle since the beginning of our adoption program:


Puzzle is very curious and can often be found around or under the boat.


Puzzle is very social and always integrated into a larger family. She seems to be doing well and since she is not one of the youngest anymore, she behaves rather cautiously.


We often see Puzzle together with Cutty in larger groups of Bottlenose Dolphins. They are trustful and occasionally swim in front of the bow.


Puzzle was quite trustful and liked to accompany the boat in front at the bow.


This year we didn't often see or recognize Puzzle when she was at a distance from the boat. She was difficult to photograph because she is always seen in a larger family and surrounded by her companions.
