Winter oasis

After few terribly cold days, during which cancelled some of the tours, we experienced today a surprising "weather oasis", the temperatures going up from many degrees. We could therefore enjoy some very nice sailing, with a warmish south wind and a fantastic visibility.

And since the humpback whales are still squatting the waters of Skalfandi Bay, the tour happened to be one of this moments when the tour guide is as much a tourist as the guests. A good 7 humpbacks entertained us, our biggest problem being rather where to look than where to find them...

There are ony 3 tours left before before the end of the season and we encourage you to join us for them. Any crumbs of this amazing year, that we've had, must be enjoyed like an actual delicacy!
