What did we see today? Humpback Whales, Minke Whales, White Beaked Dolphins

Today there was a strong south westerly wind and we all dressed up well before heading out into Faxafloi bay.  We were lucky to spot many groups of sea birds at sea which helped us find the resident Minke whales.  Captain Axel spotted the blow of a humpback whale in the distance and thats when the tour really got interesting...

With the regularly surfacing humpback was white beaked dolphins and many minke whales.

We stayed with the whales as the birds flocked all around us, calling and catching the fish from the surface of the bay.  We then left to investigate a large blow in the distance but the whale didnt surface very regularly and we ran out of time so we passed this over to another boat to investigate further....
