The morning tour provided the best weather, mirror calm seas, reflections of the mountains and the cloudy sky. The wildlife was also incredible, a massive variety of birds, seabirds and wildfowl and three species of cetacean; harbour porpoises, minke whales, humpback whales. Afternoon weather was a little windier, colder and some dark ominous clouds rolled over but the wildlife was still at its best, we even got to see a tail lob. Seems to be only new individuals humpbacks in the fjord at the moment. Looking for a new name for this guy if anyone has any suggestions please give us an email at Birds encountered today include; long-tailed ducks, eider ducks, red-throated divers, kittiwakes, gannets, fulmars, arctic terns and arctic skuas and seagulls.
