May starts with blue whales, fin whales and sei whales

First of May and the whales decided to give us a wonderful start to this month. In the morning we started with common dolphins and then encountered two fin whales that were very curious coming close to our catamaran and swimming around us as they were giant dolphins. In the afternoon we had the luck of seeing the three largest animals in the world and in the right order. The largest one first: blue whales, then the second: fin whales and last: sei whales.
