Sei whales and common dolphins!

Today started with unsettled sea conditions and poor visibility so that we had to cancel our morning tours on the sea. But luckily conditions had improved enough for us to go out whale watching on our catamaran in the afternoon. We ended up seeing a couple of small groups of common dolphins and several sei whales. The sei whales were great because we  had at least three large individuals travelling together. They were travelling in a straight line and coming up to the surface frequently so that we got to see them really well. Here are a few photos of the sei whales we saw on today's tour:

After our sightings we enjoyed a calmer trip back to the marina, cruising along the beautiful coastline of the Island..
