A calm day at sea

Today was another super calm day on the ocean. In both the morning and afternoon we went out and had great whale and dolphins watching tours. In the morning we encountered a group of bottlenose dolphins and two groups of common dolphins. In the afternoon we started with the common dolphins and then tried to watch a baleen whale. It took a bit of patience, but after some waiting we got to see the whale very well. It was a large sei whale travelling gracefully through the water. During our wait for the whale we also came across a leatherback turtle, the largest species of sea turtle!
