Bryde's whales are still around

This morning started off with a chase to the end of the island to catch with with 2 Bryde's whales (a mother and calf) that had been spotted there from the coast. The whales were very far but we took the risk in taking the long trip to try to see them. Unfortunately by the time we arrived to the area the whales were nowhere to be found and only one blow was spotted before we had to start making our way back. Luckily our dolphin friends saved the day and made everybody happy on the way back. We encountered groups of common dolphins, Atlantic spotted dolphins and bottlenose dolphins. In the afternoon the dolphins were still there to great us and we had some more great watching and swimming for the rest of the day.
