Hello everyone,

Today we had an amazing time at sea!
We started with a group of Common Dolphins (Delphinus delphis). We could see calves swimming with their moms, we could also hear a lot of whistles trough the hydrophone.

Then we got a big big surprise! Our lookout found a Baleen Whale!!!!!!!!

Yes, normally we see them during spring time but the species we saw, Sei Whale (Balaenoptera borealis) we can actually spot them between April to July. There was 2 animals side by side about 7 miles from coast.

Then to finish our tour we had an amazing group of Atlantic Spotted Dolphins (Stenella frontalis) with a feeding behavior together with a big group of Cory’s Shearwater, also feeding.
