A spectacular day out on the fjord today, the conditions were just perfect! The sun was shining, the fjord super flat and there was no wind, which is always a pleasant surprise. We sailed from Dalvik today and not only saw our first Northern Gannet of the season but found a wonderful pod of beautiful white-beaked dolphins. This pod was quite spread out and there was even a mother and calf pair among them. They delighted us with some beautiful surfacing sequences and even bow-rode for a bit. They were right at the front of the boat allowing us to see their beautiful bodies popping up under the waters surface just meters away from us. Some dolphins then even started leaping right out of the water a wonderful site to see!
