Today´s tours were a little rougher than usual but nothing too bad, many people enjoyed the roller coaster of a tour we had. Despite the waves we saw lots of beautiful cetaceans (whales, dolphins and porpoises). First we saw the delightful white-beaked dolphins who were leaping and swimming about, it was a rather large pod of about 12 individuals and they had at least 3 calves with them, one of which was less than a week old! It was super tiny and popped up many times alongside its mother, which was just delightful to watch. A minke whale, also popped up later on in our afternoon tour. The humpbacks were also out in full force we saw at least 6 individuals at varying distances. Jackson and Aretha Frankfin were swimming together at one point, coming up only meters from the boat. A wavy but wonderful day out on the fjord.
