This morning we had a boat go out for swimming with dolphins and two boats going out for whale watching. Everybody ended up having a really great tour with plenty of sightings of sperm whales, bottlenose dolphins, common dolphins and on one of the boats an additional sighting of Risso's dolphins.

In the afternoon we started off with a great sighing of the same group of bottlenose dolphins from the morning. We got a really good look at a very small newborn calf in the group. The calf had just been born recently because it still had fetal folds on its body (from being in the womb) and it seemed to still be learning how to swim. Although we did not manage to find the group of sperm whales again we did see a nice group of common dolphins, also with many young dolphins.
