After recieving our life vests, we left the harbour at Madalena on a small boat, 8 tourists, a guide and the skipper. The guide started to tell us about dolphins and whales currently present in the area.
The skipper was informed where the animals are. People located in lookouts on the island ("Vigia"s) spotted them already and told us via radio where they are. These people were directing the whalers to the whales until the 1980s, when the commercial whaling on the island ended.
