... everywhere. We saw 5 blue whales and jojo was able take some pictures in spite of the fact it was very challenging: the sea was rough and big waves were shaking our boat from side to side and not to mention keeping the camera dry was another challenge on its own. Unfortunately we did not see any dolphins but the whales were just an incredible experience of a lifetime.
