Fin whale and dolphins all around

Surrounded by cetaceans, that was the feeling today. We started our tour heading towards striped dolphins, but common dolphins kept us company all the way to the striped. After watching a calm group full of babies we headed towards the common dolphins which were hunting fish together with Cory's shearwaters, common terns and yellow-legged seagulls. After this feeding frenzy we encountered bottlenose dolphins full of curiosity looking up at our boat as we quickly watched them before ending the tour with a majestic fin whale. Photos from today:
