Blue whales, fin whales, dolphins and a seal

Today we had an amazing day full of different species. We started with common dolphins in the morning followed by bottlenose dolphins. We had some lovely time with the dolphins and a loggerhead turtle, but we ended the morning with a happy surprise of a grey seal! A very rare sighting so far from the continental coast. In the afternoon, so seal, but we got to see a blue whale chased by what we thought were two fin whales. Looking back at our photos (see below) later we realised there were actually 3 fin whales together with the blue whale! In the afternoon we also had an amazing show from bottlenose dolphins jumping high! What a day.
