Easter with blue whales and a fin whale

Today in São Miguel, Azores we spent Easter a little differently to most people. We spent the morning in the presence of 2 blue whales and a fin whale. Nothing compares to being alongside the largest and second largest animals in the world! Although they were diving frequently and a little unpredictable every body got to see the whales very well. Today's encounters brings us to 10 days straight with fin whales. We are only just in the beginning of the baleen whale season here in the Azores, but we are off to a great start already. To finish up this morning we also encountered some small groups of common dolphins.
