Lots of fin whales around

Baleen whale season all the way to the end of June, and maybe longer. Today we encountered several fin whales, one in the morning and two or three in the afternoon. They were all a bit curious and didn't mind our company, many times we wonder who is watching who. In the morning we also encountered a mixed group of common dolphins and bottlenose dolphins. In the afternoon we resighted the common dolphins. It was a quick but beautiful encounter. We also saw lots of birds, loggerhead turtles and Portuguese man-o-war.
