Where's the Zodiac?

On the open Atlantic on a calm day there are almost always long lazy swells. With the zodiac riding the trough between peaks it seems to disappear, leaving its passengers sitting on water! Guides took us against cliffs that host nesting grounds for large sea birds, giving us access to flights coming or going, fishing or fetching seaweed for nests.
