What did we see today: minke whales, white beaked dolphns, harbour porpoises, puffins, harbour seal

Out of nowhere… after days of horrific winds, the skies opened and there was beautiful clear sunshine for a day of amazing tours. In the morning, we marvelled at the puffins hopping around on the islands and fluttering about on the surface. We even saw our first seal of the season - a female harbour seal bobbing out of the water with curiosity about the boat. On our whale watching tours we were spoilt with minke whales! We got a close look at them feeding, and quickly racing through the water. The sand eels were close to the surface today, so we had a lot of opportunities to see the whales surfacing. The white beaked dolphins were seen leaping out of the seal and playing in the waves. It was a really fantastic day. Our passengers had a wonderful experience getting close to the wildlife, and enjoying the warm rays of sun in Flaxafloi!
