A calm day with fin whales and common dolphins

Today we had a tour only in the afternoon, on our medium-sized boat "Song of Whales".
The sea was completely calm and flat so we enjoyed a smooth ride the whole way. First we encountered a nice group of common dolphins that included some very small newborn calves. Very close by was the area of the whales and here we spotted two fin whales, one of which we saw very well on several surfacings. Some people aboard were also lucky to spot a beaked whale, something that is very rare to see well. Our tour ended with another look at the common dolphins and a nice calm ride back along the coastline.
