Today we were very happy to welcome these incomparable mirror like seas back in the fjord. It meant almost no wind and a very smooth ride on our boat Holmasol. Food must be still around a plenty because we had a three species tour! Starting off with a minke whale we then found seven humpback whales, another minke and finished with a large pod of harbour porpoises. Many well-known flukes were raised high above the sea surface. Miso, Harley, Humpy McHumpface, Tough Pella, Jackson and one individual which was quite lazy today, not showing the fluke. Our absolute highlight was our mini reunion with Jackson. We had not seen Jackson for a while, so we were extremely pleased to see it again and so it seemed at least the humpback whale, too. All of a sudden it turned around and approached us to take a stroll around the front of our boat. This is when whale watching becomes really special, when it is not only you who is watching the whale, but also the whale seems to be watching you.
