Fin whales are still here. Also bottlenose, common and striped dolphins jumping.

Today we had tours both in morning and in afternoon. During the morning we had an amazing sighting of 2 fin whales, just to start. So it is confirmed, the baleen whales are still here!!! After that we tried another area and luckily we spotted a small group of bottlenose dolphins. In the afternoon we had two encounters with a small groups of common dolphins that were jumping artistically. One of our small boats (zodiac) spotted some striped dolphins and a tiny loggerhead turtle.
