The days of the smaller species
The last few days have been strange in many ways. The bigger whales have not been as prominent as the weeks before, but the smaller species have blossomed instead. Minkes, Dolphins and Harbour Porpoises have been exceptionally calm and the weather has really helped out, it has been very sunny and warm. The Minke whales have been surprisingly calm and curious and many passengers have seen these beautiful animals of the sea very close, they have both breached and spy hopped, some have surfaced just centimeters from the boats and some of the (un)lucky passengers have had the privilege of smelling their foul breath. It is a unique experience but maybe not the most pleasant one.
So, despite the absence of the bigger whales, these days have been fabulous!
