The sei whales are here

We started the year with fin whales and humpback whales (starting the Baleen whale season) and then we haven't seen them for a while but today the sei whales arrived and sure surprised us. In the morning our lookout saw the blow from a whale but it disappeared. In the afternoon, the whale was still no where to be found. So like in the morning we saw three species of dolphins: bottlenose, common and striped. But on the way back our captain saw the footprints on the surface and there was the whale and not just any whale - the third largest animal in the world. And while saying bye bye to the sei whale we enjoyed the company of a loggerhead turtle.
