One of our favorite species came for a visit. We saw humpback whales!! When in a good mood, humpback whales are rather curious. They can jump and show off their long pectoral fins. Yesterday it kept distance in the morning, but in the afternoon it even passed under one of our boats. Probably wanted to see more closely who we were. In the morning we also saw fin whales and a group of Risso's dolphins. In the afternoon we saw again fin whales and also two groups of bottlenose dolphins. One of the groups had our known Egyptian (dolphin with dorsal fin with triangular shape) and in the other group we saw Max (a dolphin that has deformed upper jaw). Spring is being a decoy for our whale friends. We are waiting for your visit too.
