More baleen whales

The baleen whales keep coming past São Miguel Island. This morning we encountered a sei whale not far from Ponta Delgada and in the afternoon we encountered 4 fin whales travelling together. Both the morning and the afternoon tours were just as interesting as each other and we all got to see the whales very well. As well as our whale encounters we also encountered plenty of dolphins today. We had both common dolphins and bottlenose dolphins in the morning and common dolphins again in the afternoon. Our afternoon dolphin swimmers also had the opportunity to swim with a loggerhead turtle.
