Fin whales don't get tired of the Azores!



In the morning we had a chance to see a very calm fin whale spending a lot of time underwater but very close to the surface, meaning that it was resting a little bit. 
We also saw some birds flying around and we all know what that means…dolphins! It was a very small pod of common dolphins feeding with the birds. 
Our boat of swimming with dolphins was lucky to see something really rare, a humpback whale feeding, it was in the same area of the dolphins from the swimming.
In the afternoon the sea was getting a little bit worst but we still could see a pod of bottlenose dolphins swimming around the boat and we ended the day with more fin whales, even though they were a little bit shy.
