Identification of fish

Two fish, maybe 1.5 metres long each. Swimming slowly around together in a bay in Turkey for up to half an hour. Did not surface so unable to get closer look. Not sharks or Dolphins. Any ideas?

    Size is the main giveaway here. Pretty sure these are Bluefin Tuna.

    Re: Identification of fish

    I'm just wondering if they could have been young Marlin playing near the surface. The tip of the tail is the right shape in the second picture. Also the proportions and spacings look right from the dorsal to the caudal fin, for a fish around 1.5 meters in length.

     

    Just a guess, but it looks right to me.
