Marine mammals of Mayotte...

Mayotte dolphins

Mayotte is famous for being dolphins as well as humpback whales paradise(to be seen from August till October every year). While enjoying a day out in the ocean (one day for fishing, one day just for real sea sightseeing) we were lucky to encounter different dolphin species. Once you are in the water (and your ears too), the amazing dolphin language sounds like a melody in an unknown language! Some of the dolphins made their jumps just in front of the boat.

The whales were a bit lazier, not real show from them. Just one baby whale jumped out of the blue and we were so surprised that the record is just in our heads:)

I would like to present to you our (sea) guide Georges and (one of the four) fishes he got during the fishing day:

Next to the beautiful nature the only thing that disturbs here is the way the garbage is everywhere...Definitely a point to be improved!

Garbage is always a problem. We consume and we actually don't know what exactly happens to the left behind materials like wraooers and packaging... sad reality.

Lovely waters and amazing fishes!
