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

White Cap

White Cap is a female Bottlenose Dolphin and, as her name suggests, we can easily recognize her by the white tip of her dorsal fin. She usually swims in a larger school of Bottlenose Dolphins and does not feel excluded from the group despite her problem with the fin.

Adopt White Cap

We are committed to a responsible treatment of the sea. And you can help us! With a symbolic sponsorship you support our research and educational work in Spain. Together we can achieve a lot!

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

2015

White Cap is still a young dolphin that can be recognized very well by its white fin. There are more dolphins in her family with similar white spots on their dorsal fins, but not as pronounced as White Cap. We are curious whether it will remain so bright white or will slowly fade over the wintertime.

2016

We have often seen White Cap, even far out in the Atlantic, while we observed over 100 Bottlenose Dolphins in a large group. It seems that she has a young one with her.

2017

We've seen White Cap a lot this year, mostly accompanied by her young one from last year.

2018

White Cap is always fast and recognizable from a distance. She has a young one born in 2016 that we named Fortunato. She protects it and the two always swim close together. White Cap moves in a group of about 12 Bottlenose Dolphins and has been spotted 17 times.
