False killer whales and smaller dolphins

Today was a day of Egípcio and family, this fantastic group of bottlenose dolphins stayed around in a small area throughout the day so we could see and swim with them both in the morning and afternoon. Egípcio (the egyptian) got the name as the dorsal fin is triangle shaped, like a pyramid. In the morning we had a lovely surprise with a big and active group of false killer whales or pseudorcas, and we don't see them many times per year so it was great. They were feeding and we could see one carrying a big fish in its mouth. In the afternoon we saw the blow from a baleen whale (most likely a fin whale), but that was it. Sadly we never got to see this whale, but the dolphins made our day perfect. Especially the spotted dolphins that were giving us a show by jumping a lot.
