Fin whales and dolphins

The day started with rain and a very grey sky but we almost didn't even leave the marina before we had our first group of common dolphins surrounding the catamaran, and before we reached the whales we encountered two more groups of common dolphins. Then sunshine came and we arrived to the area were our vigia had seen two whales. And we didn't wait for long before we saw the first blow and we watched  a big fin whale, at least 25 m long, and before we left the fin whale came up closer to the boat and we all got a really good look at it before we returned to the marina.
