This morning we spotted Fin Whales, Common Dolphins a little Loggerhead Sea Turtle!

On the photo below we can see two Fin Whales, a mother and a baby. Baby Fin Whales are approximately 6 meters long when born and weigh about 2 tons. The gestation period is in between 11 to 12 months.

Always fills up our heart with joy to see a baby whale!
