Good evening everyone, we had 2 wonderful trips today with one minke whale in the morning and 2 minkes in the afternoon. I wanted to share some photos from our morning trip as we got some amazing looks at the special surface behaviour of the minke. A minke will typically bring its entire rostrum out of the water as it surfaces, pushing the water forward and creating a wave. It’s very unique and not always as visible as it was today.
We also saw lots of seals and porpoise, seabirds and eagles (the young eaglets were strengthening their flight muscles today…lots of flapping of their wings). There was also lots of food in the water, both fish and krill!
Thanks for checking in today!
