Fin whales and dolphins

Today the sea was a bit wavy, but our clients had a really fun ride aboard our zodiacs in the morning. The best part was that we got to see both whales and dolphins on the trip. The whales we saw were fin whales; three of them travelling together, including a really huge individual and a smaller juvenile. The dolphins encountered today were our resident common dolphins. We also had a really good look at a large loggerhead turtle to complete the tour. On this tour it was not easy to capture really great photos, but here are a few that we did manage to get today.

Common dolphins - in the end we saw a very curious group!
