And the fin whales keep coming

Over the past few days we have been seeing many fin whales on our tours, as well as common dolphins every day and bottlenose dolphins yesterday. Yesterday we also had an additional sighting of sperm whales that were passing the island and were already leaving again early this morning. Yesterday our biologists on board managed to capture several really good photos during our encounters:
