2 species of baleen whales and dolphins

On this day we went out only in the morning and saw bottlenose dolphins, two blue whales, fin whales (at least four individuals) and common dolphins (together with the fin whales and blue whale). Again we saw whale poo (this time from a fin whale) which indicates that the whales have been feeding recently and why we may be seeing so many individuals staying for a while in the same area.

Big blue whale blow!
