Orcas in the bay!
On today's whale watching trip the crew and passengers on Náttfari found a group of Orcas. It was a group of 6-8 animals, scattered around a small area and the animals were obviously feeding. They were pretty calm and everyone had a really nice look. White-beaked dolphins were also spotted on the tour.
Orcas, also named Killer Whales, are tooth whales, measuring around 6-9 meters and weigh about 3-9 tons. They are famous for their distincitve white spots and the dorsal fin that can get up to 1,8 meters high.
Following are some pictures that guide Thordis took on the trip.
These two showed themselves quite close to the boat
Here we can see clearly the Orca's high dorsal fin
The passangers had a close look
The blow from the Orca is quite clear
