Monday | Whale and dolphin watching

This morning the sea was full of life and our highlight encounter was with a large group of false killer whales together with bottlenose dolphins (did you know the two species can mate to create a hybrid called a wholphin?). It was our first encounter with false killer whales this year so we felt really lucky, especially since it's a species that we don't see regularly. We also encountered a big group of common dolphins and a lot of Cory's shearwaters everywhere. Finally, to top it off we encountered a loggerhead turtle in the area of the common dolphins. What a morning!
