Friday - Morning | Whale and Dolphin Watching

This morning we were incredibly lucky to encounter a humpback whale feeding on fish among a group of playful bottlenose dolphins. When we approached the whale for the first time it came out of the water with its mouth wide open to take in a school of small fish. The bottlenose dolphins were swimming right around the whale, possibly to take some fish too, or maybe to watch the whale just as we were. At one point the whale even came close to our boat to watch us for a while, making us feel incredibly lucky to have this experience that doesn't happen every day. During our tour we also encountered a nice group of common dolphins, giving us a total of 3 different species to enjoy.
