We had a second 4-species-day right away – but today we exchanged the Minke whale for a lot of orcas!! During the tour we came across a small pod of white-beaked dolphins that approached the boat shortly, a sperm whale showing us the fluke at a distance, a humpback whale lunge-feeding very close to the boat, and two different groups of orcas socializing, feeding and travelling! Well, if that’s not an amazing outcome, then I don’t know what is. When we approached orca group number 2, we could even see a breach from one of the juveniles at a distance, and there were lots of babies playing with each other in between diving gannets and bigger orcas hunting herring underneath the surface. One juvenile approached the boat before hurrying back to the feeding frenzy. Ah, what a day! We hope for many more like this to come this summer!
