One of each

We had some different sightings today on our two boats that left the marina. Our zodiac encountered sperm whales, common dolphins and fin whales. From our catamaran, we passed the common dolphins to get to the sperm whales, which showed us their majestic flukes, and after them we left to see the fin whales but we ended up with lots of sei whales, we had three closer to us but there were more blows around. One of the sei whales decided to bowride Cetus! And just outside the marina we ended up bottlenose dolphins. So we all got to see a dolphin species, a species of baleen whale and the largets toothed predator in the world: the sperm whale. In the afternoon one zodiac left to swim with wild and free dolphins.
