Trying the luck

Today we had to cancel the morning tours due to rain, but we set sail in the afternoon instead. Our lookout had spotted the blow from a baleen whale, most likely a sei whale, and we went to the area to search. It was before we left the harbour that he saw it and he did not resight the whale. It was a little bit rough out there and "white horses" doesn't make it easy. We spent some time searching but unfortunately we were unlucky in this sense. But we were lucky with dolphins, both common dolphins to start the tour and bottlenose dolphins to finish. The bottlenose dolphins were the highlight as they were surfing happily in the waves and we got to see some nice jumps out of the waves close to our catamaran.
