Fin whales

Today we had many fin whales off the coast of São Miguel Island. It was great to be able to encounter them both in the morning and afternoon, especially after they have been absent for a few days. In the afternoon we encountered at least 4 or 5 big fin whales all travelling together and we had some really nice encounters with them every time they came up to the surface. In the morning we also encountered bottlenose dolphins, common dolphins and a grey seal that has decided to make Ponta Delgada its home for a while.
