The fin whales have decided to still keep us company and it gives us great joy. We are very happy to have them around, and today we saw at least 11 individuals in the morning. Some of them were very calm around us and others had something going on, maybe making future whales (sustainable whale watching, right?). We also enjoyed the company of common dolphins, a playful group with lots of curious calves turning and looking at our boats and clients, doing some "human-watching".
In the afternoon we encountered many fin whales, travelling calmly aswell as a fun group of common dolphins.
