The Orca season lasted this year from the 25th of July to the 22nd of August. We were able to observe these beautiful black and white dolphins on eight days. From the end of July to the end of August we were able to observe Fin Whales on 14 days and on 20 trips.
Tarifa is literally embraced by the wind, which comes from two main directions with nice sounding names: Levante, or Poniente. In winter there is sometimes a cold north wind (especially at night and in the morning) or a south-west wind.
Watching a Fin Whale is always something very special, because you don't get to see this baleen whale very often. It is probably the rarest whale we see here in the Strait of Gibraltar out of all seven species.
The first trip of the season was an impressive experience. The sea was calm and the visibility clear. We were greeted by several hundred lively Striped and Common Dolphins, which accompanied us for a long time.
