Record-breaking Fin Whale summer! Already the 20th sighting since April 2007!

After Jörn's two Fin Whale sightings yesterday, we were fortunate to experience another very special trip this morning! In the first 15 minutes, right in front of Tarifa, we crossed a school of about 200 Striped Dolphins. What a joy to accompany these dolphins that were jumping curiously around us! The children howled with delight!

Fifteen minutes later we crossed the Strait of Gibraltar, heading for the Moroccan coast. From far away we spotted a big blow, which could only be that of a Fin Whale. Again, a big group of Bottlenose Dolphins was accompanying this giant. They leapt in front of the Fin Whale as if to show us his whereabouts. He was swimming westerly towards the Atlantic and soon we passed a group of Pilot Whales with a newborn calf. Our guests did not know where to watch: the hilariously jumping Bottlenose Dolphins,

I have never before experienced three different species together at the same location! What a lucky start to a new day!
