A marine life frenzy with sei whales, bottlenose dolphins, Atlantic spotted dolphins, striped dolphins and common dolphins feeding together with Cory's shearwaters. We also saw several loggerhead turtles, flying fish and of course lots of horse mackerel around the feeding (even common dolphins throwing fish out of the water). Our lookout also saw Risso's dolphins but the boats never saw them, we were busy with whales everywhere.

Our biologist Miranda taking a photo of one of the sei whale today,
did you know we can identify the individuals from the marking on their dorsal fins?
Every whale is unique and the fin are like fingerprints :)
Another sei whale, this time together with common dolphins
