What did we see today: humpback whales, minke whales, white beaked dolphins, harbour porpoises, puffins
Welcome back humpbacks! Today's experience included the morning puffin tour followed by two incredible humpback encounters. Both tours included all four cetacean species! Minkes were not shy and happily passed close to the RIB. The sea birds put on a fabulous show - hundreds of arctic terns, gulls and gannets dived for sandeels as harbour porpoises fed below. The humpback was the centre of the show. During both of our whale watching trips we were lucky enough to see the humpback slapping its fins on the sea's surface and in the afternoon we even got to see it breaching... continuously!! Tail slaps concluded its amazing performance. We also had close encounters with white beaked dolphins. We loved every second of today.
A special thank you to Alyssa and Adam from San Diego for sending us their incredible photos and video (below) from today's tour. They described this trip as a "once in a lifetime experience" and we are beyond THRILLED to have helped make this possible for you.
