Yesterday we have fin whales again, and they were fantastic both in the morning and afternoon tours. In the morning we saw first one big fin whale, but when we were coming back, we saw also a very small one a little bit closer to the shore. In the afternoon we saw two fin whales, one bigger than the other, both of them coming up to the surface very sincronized. But without any doubt, the show of the day was with the beautiful common dolphins, saw in both tours. Firstly they were very calm and curious around our boats, with very small babies. And suddenly, they started to jump and travel fast levaing everyone on board amazed. We found even a plastic dolphin on our way back. Plastic is one of the biggest threats for marine life nowadays!
