The morning brought us a calm day with flat sea, no wind and a shining sun. We got the best conditions to go whale watching! We had to wait until the afternoon because that was when today's tour was booked. Not a problem because the good conditions continued into the afternoon. Just five minutes after we left the marina we had our first encounter with some Risso's dolphins. It was a small group (about half a dozen) old dolphins. Following this encounter we headed for the common dolphins that were spread into many small groups across a vast area. They travelled with us for a long time while we waited for whales to appear. We waited and waited....but no whales today.
