This morning Futurismo had two boats on the water for whale watching and one for swimming with dolphins. The whale watchers saw bottlenose dolphins, common dolphins and a blue whale to end with. It was a nice surprise to still be able to see a blue whale which are mostly migrating past a bit earlier in the year. The people on the dolphin swimming boat had a nice time with the common dolphins that were seen together with a couple of striped dolphins.
