What did we see today?  Minke Whale x 10! Humpback Whale, White beaked dolphin, harbour porpoises.

Perfectly flat seas greeted us today on our morning tours and as the day passed, gentle rolling waves started.  In such excellent conditions seeing whales was easy.  Minke whales surfaced around the boat repeatedly and the sea birds dived and flew around us.  The calm feeling of the day caught everyone in its arms and the sea rocked us gently as a humpback surfaced (see video), breathed deep and then dived showing us its flukes.

The harbour porpoise, ever the friend of the minke whale approached the boat and jumped with joy.  Finally we saw a travelling pod of white beaked dolphins heading into the distance....

 

What a beautiful day to be at sea.
