Fleur de Passion is now sailing to Australia. Meanwhile the investigation of underwater recordings made through the program “20'000 Sounds Under the Sea” during the first half of the Pacific crossing, from Chile to Tahiti, from April to June, continues at the Bioacoustics Applications Laboratory of the Polytechnic University of Catalonia in Barcelona.

Thus, in both sequences below, recorded respectively on 11 April 2016 at the approach of Conception in Chile (position 37 ° 04'42.2 "S 74 ° 43'17.4" W) and on 25 April 2016 north west of the Robinson island (position 29 ° 58'47.6 "S 82 ° 29'56.0" W), you can hear the whistles and clicks likely coming from pilot dolphins (Globicephala macrorhynchus / G. melas), a species belonging to the family of pilot whales. But the crew didn’t manage to see them.
