Seven species in one day

Today we tried our luck going west and we were succesful. In the morning we found in the calm ocean several flying fish, a fin whale, a very big sperm whale male and porpoising striped dolphins from the Catamaran. The zodiacs managed to have a short sighting of an unidentified beaked whale species. On the swim with dolphins tours the Atlantic spotted dolphins joined the swimmers in the morning and the afternoon trip. In the afternoon the sun came out to great us together with fin whales, common dolphins and bottlenose dolphins. Besides all this cetaceans we met a loggerhead turtle, more flying fish and different seabirds like Cory shearwaters, yellow leged seagulls and common terns.
