Blue whale resighted. Also sei whales and common dolphins.

We just had another fantastic trip on the water! Our tour started with a sighting of three sei whales travelling together. After watching them for a while we went further ofshore where we encountered a very large blue whale. It was the same blue whale that we saw two days ago (see previous blog). We got to see the big blue very well, especially the first time it surfaced when it surprised us with a very large and loud blow near our boat. There are no words to describe what it is like to see the world's largest animal up close! Our tour finished with a friendly group of common dolphins closer to the coastline.
