Baleen whales and sperm whales

Today was a day of both baleen whales and sperm whales. In the morning we encountered one of the baleen whale species, a fin whale that was still quite small, possibly a large juvenile or a young adult. The afternoon was the time of the sperm whales. They were quite close to shore, not far from the airport. We had some nice encounter with three of these sperm whales from aboard our catamaran. We also encountered plenty of dolphins today, in the morning common dolphins and Risso's dolphins and in the afternoon bottlenose dolphins (the group of Bubblemaker).
