Curious humpback and fin whales

We started this Wednesday with our loyal common dolphins but we soon left to see fin whales. At first it seemed like it was going to be a bit difficult but no, we had two curious fin whales. One of our boats got to smell the breath of one whale. Talk about fishy. Then the fin whales had had enough of human watching, so we left them to see what else we could find. Just then we got the news of a humpback whale our lookout had spotted more inshore. We had a great time with this big humpback whale that surfaced near our boats several times, each time surprising us. Curious whales is one of the best things in the world.
