This morning we had a very successful trip where we got to see four different species.

First we got to see some Common Dolphins that were feeding with a flock of Cory’s Shearwater. This group included adults, juveniles and calves.

We left this group to see some Beaked Whales. Despite it being very difficult to spot them on a boat as they are very sensitive to noise, we got to see a group of them 🙂

However we soon left them to see a Fin Whale and we had a a short while to admire this majestic animal.

To finish off a great trip we passed by a group of Bottlenose Dolphins as we were heading back.

Keep tuned for more news of our tours! 🙂
