Sunny sailing continues! Today we had perfect conditions for whale watching, lots of sunshine and flat sea. The star of the day was, again, our dear old friend, Depill, a humpback whale that we know very well from previous years as well. He was doing short dives and showing the beautiful fluke to us again and again which of course was just perfect for us. At one point, we thought we had two humpback whales together but it was maybe just Depill doing double fluke ups since we did not actually see a second whale later on. Some things remain a mystery as we can’t see what is happening under water ! On the morning tours we also saw Northern bottlenose whales close to the harbor. They always manage to surprise us completely and pop up when we least expect it. It is always exciting to spot these uncommon visitors in the fjord and we wonder how long they will still stay around.
