Sea trip with Marapa

After one-hour sail on calm waters, we had the chance to see a group of 100/150 dolphins. There are many species of whales, dolphins, porpoises and turtles, and with a little luck it is possible to observe them. 

An information session organized by Bastien from Marapa about all the different marine species in Sao Tome and Principe.
