28.10.2018: a Humpback whale with Pilot Whales & Bottlenose Dolphins

Sightings October 28th, 2018: today we had an awesome sighting – a humpback whale off the coast of Valle Gran Rey, it jumped out of the water several times almost in full size, so that the Speedy passengers could see it in full beauty.

The rare sighting of a Humpback whale off La Gomera alone is already gigantic, but to observe how our local Pilot whales try to chase the Humpback whale (Megaptera novaeangliae) out of their territory was great.

Before we also saw Bottlenose dolphins.
