A great day out on the water with Futurismo! #WorldWhaleDay

Today it's #WorldWhaleDay. This day originated in Hawaii to celebrate humpback whales, but the idea is spreading around the world and now includes other whale species. Futurismo marked this special day out on the ocean in the company of fin whales, the second largest animal in the world! We got to see a mother and her calf, very calm at the surface and often surfacing near our boats. Of course we cannot forget the whales'smaller cousins the dolphins. We also encountered a nice group of bottlenose dolphins that were keen to show of some of their acrobatic jumps. What a great day out on the water with Futurismo!
