Five species and a triple tail moment

Today we encountered five different species, we started with the wonderful but shy Risso's dolphins. They stayed for a while at the surface and we could easy follow the colour through the water. But we did not stay long as we had more to see. In a small area we encountered all our resident dolphins, so the Risso's was followed by a mixed group of common dolphins and bottlenose dolphins. Then it was time for the fin whale. It was a young individual, maybe the same one that we saw yesterday. At the same time we had sperm whales all around. We left the fin whale when it went diving and headed towards four sperm whales on the surface. 3 big adults together and another one further away. We got the grand final of the morning with three flukes at once! The boat for the afternoon has left and we are curious to know what they are seeing out there.
