2 species today - common dolphin and fin whale

Today we had whale watching in both morning and afternoon. In the morning we only saw common dolphins, a small group with lots of newborns. We waited a long time to see a group of sperm whales that were diving, but we never saw them, reminding us that we never know what to expect from wildlife tourism. In the afternoon we saw a very curious fin whale that often surprised us by approaching our boats (zodiac and catamaran) almost every time that it surfaced. Photos from today:
