Would you rather have a blue or a fin whale on your tour? We'll have both, thank you…
It was one of these days when everything just clicks together. The weather was absolutely fantastic, the slight north-eastern breeze being almost welcomed on the boat, under this unbelievable April sun.
We were granted with a blue whale observation in the morning and it was still there in the afternoon, but together with a fin whale! It is astonishing for us to see the two largest whale species in the world on a same tour!
It reminded the crew the best tours we had last year in July… With the exception that it’s only 3rd April! We probably still have lots of great days like this one ahead of us in Skalfandí Bay!
The Blue Whale looked very thin from close up, probably tired after a long migration.
The fin whale, next to the mountains on the East Side of the Bay.
And the same animal, lifting its back slightly before going for a dive.
The flipper of the blue whale, rolling on itsself…
… and eventually leaving us.
We, nowadays, hire them young at North Sailing!
