Hello everyone!

Today the sea was a bit choppy and a bit cold. Nonetheless, we could see a Fin Whale more or less at 10 miles from the coast. It was a big one and we could see it very well, despite the waves. We stayed a bit with the whale because it was very relaxed.

On the last part of the tour we saw a big group of Common dolphins, they were about 80 dolphins. Almost half of the group were socializing and because they had calves with them it seemed that the mothers were teaching the claves how to jump 🙂 . The other half were feeding very actively, also with the calves and juveniles and we could hear the whistles because they were comunicating a lot. It was a good morning!
