Orcas, fin whale, bottlenose dolphins and common dolphins


Another sunny and wonderful day for us on the sea with lots of different animals. In the morning we encountered orcas again, and a large group of bottlenose dolphins. In the afternoon we saw common dolphins with a few babies in the group and a majestic fin whale. The orcas were the same group as yesterday but mixed with a group that we saw in the beginning of March. It was very interesting to see them together this time. In the afternoon we also saw a big loggerhead turtle and lots of seabirds.

See our video from our April orca sightings below, or on youtube by clicking HERE.
