It’s literally raining animals today!

The animals were raining out of the sky this morning, and so did we get wet!

In between the changing flat sea, rough sea and rainshowers there was 1 Blue Whale, 1 Finwhale, Risso’s Dolphins, and over 200 Striped dolphins mixed with Common dolphins. Well….the Striped dolphins were more flying towards the sky than falling from it…..

Tiago our skipper-mediaman took some underwater images of the Common dolphins as they came very close to the boat. The rain did not allow us to take photos of the other animals, but here you go! 🙂
