Species seen today: humpback whales, minke whales, white beaked dolphins

We were only able to operate one tour today in the morning as the wind strength increased a great deal by the early afternoon. The tour was great however, with three cetacean species being seen once again. The tour started with a pod of white-beaked dolphins which were first seen under a flock of birds, slowly moving away from the area as we approached. We sat patiently waiting for the dolphins to show themselves again and were rewarded with a great viewing as they surfed right towards us with a small wave. The dolphins swam directly beneath the boat and resurfaced on the opposite side. Our second sighting was a humpback whale moving calmly at the surface. The whale showed itself many times, lifting the fluke for almost every deep dive. Finally, we caught a few glimpses of a shy minke whale, slowly cruising on our left.
