A taste of the baleen whale season

Today we had three zodiacs leaving the marina for whale watching, and we started with common dolphins and bottlenose dolphins. Our lookout spotted the blows from humpback whales, and we searched and waited a long time but we never saw them from our boats, only the footprints (marks in the water from the fluke of the whale). In the afternoon we had both whale watching and swimming with dolphins, the swimmers had a lovely time with bottlenose dolphins and the whale watchers tried one more with the whales, this time fin whales or sei whales, but once again no luck. But the dolphins gave us another great afternoon.
