More blue whale tails

Our big blue from yesterday is still here, and this morning the whale was bringing up its massive tail again. Three times we saw the tail, each time very high like our resident sperm whales normally would do. It was the highest that any of us had ever seen a blue whale, the largest animal in the world, raise its tail. We also got to see the second largest animal, a fin whale, as well as our resident common dolphins and bottlenose dolphins. On top of this we also briefly sighted a beaked whale species (very rare to see) and a loggerhead turtle. In short, this morning our tour was really amazing so we have many photos of our sightings to share...
