False killer whales, blue whales and fin whales

Best morning ever! We had a blue whale (maximum size 33 meters) passing just under our zodiac boat (8 meters), normally blue whales are a little shy but this one was really curious. After we went for a small pod of false killer whales that were very active on the surface and out of the blue, some common dolphins join us. At a certain point, the false killer whales reached the blue whale from the beginning and unfortunately, they were trying to hit
the whale. One of the preys of false killer whales is whales. To end this beautiful morning we encounter a very big pod of bottlenose dolphins that were always around the boat. In the afternoon we saw a blue whale swimming really fast, a small pod of bottlenose and common dolphins and we still add one more species to the list! Two fin whales side by side and another one a little bit further away!
