Common dolphins and a mysterious whale

Today we had a cold but sunny day on the sea with two groups of common dolphins. Our vigia also spotted a baleen whale further out and we tried to see it. As we were approaching the whale we saw the tall, beautiful blow but when we arrived closer the whale had already dived and we waiting as long as we had time but the whale did not come up. Our vigia informed us that the baleen whale, most likely a sei whale, only came up to take two breaths at the time and then went underwater to feed which made it a bit difficult for us to find it. But we all were happy about the wonderful dolphins, and to have seen the blow of the whale in the distant. Photos from today:
