    Abrolhos is a paradisiacal place, I went in search of observing humpback whales this time of year are in the hundreds on our coast.

    We went to Abrolhos in and round the Abrolhos Boats aboard the catamaran Ocean. We enjoyed a lot of the trip, we saw many whales and dive and took many pictures on Thistles which is very beautiful. On the boat the Cook George made a pasta with chicken and salad, everything fresh fresh made there in front of us. We want to get back to an overnight stay in the archipelago.

    The Park of Abrolhos is very well maintained and a service of guided visits nice. Diving let me down a little bit because on Ilha Grande in Rio State is much more variety. The big difference are the whales that we find on the way.
