On-board Diary: Marina Rubicón, Lanzarote. October 5, 2009

Before continuing with the submersions and heading toward the Chinijo Archipelago -our last sampling area in the area surrounding Lanzarote- we spent the day in port; some resting, others sightseeing.

While we were with Marina Rubicón, we ran into Natacha Aguilar and the Universidad de la Laguna Cetacean Research Group. They mentioned that they were returning from Concepción Bank where they have had a bad calm, and were able to enjoy numerous cetacean sightings. Now their course is contrary to ours: working in Amanay and el Banquete.

In the evening they were aboard the Oceana Ranger where we explained to them how we work and we showed them Canarian sea bottom images obtained by the ROV.
