Baleen whales and dolphins

On this day we had several boats going out in both the morning and afternoon. In the morning, among our various boats we sighted fin whales (three individuals), Risso's dolphins, bottlenose dolphins and common dolphins. In the afternoon we had another fin whale, a blue whale and bottlenose dolphins. The blue whale had been feeding recently because we saw it leave bright orange poo (probably from feeding on krill) behind on the surface. The following photos from this day were taken from aboard our catamaran:
