A little bit of luck needed

Today we were really trying hard to do our best and sometimes it works and other times not as well. Our morning was a true success as we started with a nice group of common dolphin and then we went on a search as our lookout didn't see any whales. We tried and were lucky as our captain of Cetus found a fin whale! In the afternoon we tried again but we did not have the same luck with the whales. We went really far off shore, further then normal to see sperm whales. As we finally arrived there were no whales to see. We waited for them a long time and as one boat got a glimpse of a sperm whale calf, at least we were in the right area. Eventually we had to give up. On the way back we briefly saw beaked whales, most likely Cuviers' beaked whales. But then the luck turned and we had two great encounters with common dolphins and bottlenose dolphins. A great thanks to all our clients and their patience today.
