The first giant baby of the year

This morning we saw the first giant baby of the year - a baby fin whale! The calf was travelling together with its mother and must have already been a few months old. It was great to see this  additon to the population. Our encounter with this pair was a really good one. The dives were short and the surface intervals were long so we got to see them really well. Before our fin whale encounter we also watched a small group of bottlenose dolphins, which our swimming clients stayed with to enjoy their company in the water.
