Sei whales and resident dolphins

Today we saw all of our three resident dolphin species: bottlenose, common and Risso's dolphins. Even it was a bit foggy  we managed to see all of them and both in the morning and afternoon the third biggest animal of all, two sei whales traveling. When the sei whales are traveling it is easy for us to track them as they leave a path in the surface, what we call the footprint of the whale. This effect is created with the movement up and down of the tail whale and allow us to accompany  the whale during a very very short part of their migration ;)

Some photos of the species we saw:
