Whales playing hard to get

In the morning the whales played hard to get but in the end of the day we encountered a young and curious fin whale. In the morning we had a great time with Bubblemaker (bottlenose dolphins) and a big group of common dolphins, with lots of new born babies. Some of them no more then a few days old. In the afternoon we resighted the dolphins and then we travelled far to find the whale. It was an amazing young one supercurious to our boat, swimming right next to us and we could easily follow its colour.
