3 baleen whale species today!!!

During both the morning and afternoon tours we sighted blue whales, fin whales and common dolphins. In the afternoon one of our boats also encountered a sei whale (that apparently had very bad breath!). In the morning we sighted one fin whale and at least five different blue whales including two pairs travelling together. In the afternoon one of the blue whales was relighted travelling together with a fin whale.
