Em 2016 avistamos 8 espécies de cetáceos no Algarve

Fomos conversar com dos nossos operadores marítimos parceiros, a Dream Wave. Esta operadora marítima, sediada na Marina de Albufeira, é especialista nos passeios de barco de observação de cetáceos no Algarve (entre outros passeios de barco). A operadora revelou que ao longo de 2016 foram avistadas 8 espécies de cetáceos no Algarve.

Golfinhos comuns felizes! Por Dream Wave.

As espécies de cetáceos no Algarve mais observadas foram:

  • Roaz-corvineiro (Tursiops truncatus) – muito dinâmicos e divertidos. O roaz é a mais famosa e conhecida espécie de cetáceo no mundo. Estes golfinhos podem ser avistados em qualquer parte do globo exceto os mares polares. Além disso, é a espécie mais comum nos parques temáticos. Os roazes podem alcançar 4 metros de comprimento.
  • Golfinho-comum (Delphinus delphis) – é a espécie mais comum nas águas temperadas dos oceanos Atlântico e Pacífico e também pode ser avistado no mar Caribe e Mediterrâneo.

 

Outras espécies de cetáceos no Algarve estão sempre presentes mas são de mais difícil avistamento. O boto-comum (Phocoena phocoena), por exemplo, não costuma ser encontrado muitas vezes devido à sua timidez. O grampo (Grampus griseus) e a orca (Orcinus orca) também foram avistados este ano, tal como em ano anteriores.

Baleias comuns são impressionantes! Por Dream Wave.

No que toca a baleias, a operadora marítima registou o avistamento de três espécies:

  • Baleia-comum (Balaenoptera physalus) – é o segundo maior animal existente, depois da baleia-azul. A Baleia-comum pode atingir um comprimento de até 25,9m!
  • Baleia-sardinheira (Balaenoptera borealis) – Também conhecida por baleia-sei. Alcançando um comprimento de até 20 m e pesando até 45 toneladas, é o terceiro maior balaenopteridae.
  • Baleia-anã (Balaenoptera acutorostrata) – também conhecida como baleia-minke, estes mamíferos marinhos caracterizam-se por possuírem barbas em vez de dentes. Têm um comprimento até 9m, sendo as fêmeas maiores que os machos.

 

A operadora marítima afirma que nos últimos anos o interesse público na observação de cetáceos no Algarve tem crescido de forma significativa. No entanto, a operadora demonstra-se preocupada com a quantidade de lixo que se encontra no mar e que pode afetar este interesse, além de que afeta as tartarugas, aves marinhas e cetáceos no Algarve.

Assim, as tripulações da Dream Wave preocupam-se em tentar cumprir com o seu papel cívico, recolhendo a maior parte desse lixo que encontram. É esta uma das razões pelas quais gostamos de trabalhar com esta operadora. A operadora tem uma atitude de dedicação, profissionalismo e um profundo respeito pelo mar.
