Delphine aus nächster Nähe

★★★★★ Reviewed by Lisa on 2019-10-12
Wir hatten 2-3 tolle Stunden, bei bestem Wetter und haben jede Menge Delphine aus nächster Nähe sehen können, obwohl die See außerhalb der Bucht etwas rau war. Danach haben wir noch einen kurzen Stop am Praia de Comenda gemacht und konnten vom Boot springen und schwimmen.
