Morning and afternoon tours were feeding time for both whales and birds. There were big flocks of birds feeding around the bay which helped us a lot on finding the wonderful whales! The afternoon tour brought us an amazing lounge feeding of a humpback whale which looked very hungry coming with its mouth open all the way out of the water, incredible sighting! The birds had their piece of food too getting the leftovers from the humpback. We had a great sighting of habour porpoises coming close to the boat when engine off surfing the waves, it is always a pleasure to have a good look of the little cetaceans too of course.
