Travel – Dolphins seen off Madeira, Mid- Atlantic Ocean

Due to its position in the mid-Atlantic Ocean, the island of Madeira is ideal for watching visiting whales and the many different types of dolphins.

At just five kilometres off shore the island shelf drops to a depth of more than 3,000 meters making these serene and beautiful animals easy to spot and watch from a boat.

These photos were taken by the author on one such visit on a rather grey day in May 2011.
