We sailed out with a strong southern wind today, already in the harbour it was very choppy. After 1 hour sailing we spotted a blow, which belonged to a humpback whale. The whale was not easy to follow, both because of the sea conditions and because it went for long dives at a time. Each time the animal surfaced very far from where it went for a dive. Luckily we managed to find this humpback whale five times and it showed us the fluke a few times as well when it went for a dive.
Due to the weather conditions we decided to cancel the rib tours for the entire day and the classic tour for the afternoon. We hope the weather will improve soon and we are able to sail out again tomorrow.
Departures: Classic 9h
