Minkes and dolphins in the fog!
We had just sailed out of the harbor and into a massive fog when we saw a big group of white beaked dolphins! They were swimming fast and were very close to the land so we kept our distance and sailed along with them for 10-15 minutes! They light was mysterious because of the mixture of the fog and sun shine. After this extraordinary sight we decided to head west and try our luck there although the fog was thick and we could just see a small radius around the boat. After a while searching we suddenly spotted a minke whale. After just few minutes we were glad to realized that it was not just one minke but at least three of them right next to us. They were obviously feeding right under the surface and we did almost not have to move cause they were pretty much circling in the same area the whole time, witch was a great luck for us due to the thick fog all around us. This tour turned out to be great although I had some doubts in the beginning due to the conditions.
