On this place you can find a lots of groupers. They are very docile and curious.

"Dolphin-watching" with the "Tzigane" in Guadeloupe

Actually the reason for our trip to the Carribean sea from Pigeon with the sailing boat "Tzigane" was watching whales. For sorrow we saw no whales, but we had a really spectacular experience with dolphins. About 100 dolphins swam in the bow waveof the boat for nearly 20 minutes. Wachting them we heard them breathing out and sinking down or coming up. We were really lucky seeing and observing these wunderful animals in their natural environment...

On the boat they showed us a tooth of a sperm whale.

... and then the adventure wit the dolphins began...
