Sunrise/Sunset

A very unexpected visitor

After the storm a couple of days ago, the weather has calmed down again and today and yesterday we had very successful whale watching trips. On both days we enjoyed the company of three very relaxed humpback whales and what made it even more enjoyable was the fact that on both days we saw two…

The day after the storm

We had to cancel our whale watching tours yesterday, due to very bad weather conditions out in the bay. Also today, the sea was still a bit bumpy, but we decided to head out with a group of enthusiastic whale watchers. We were setting the course towards the area where we last saw the whales,…
