Today we will be operating on our lovely vessel Eldey for the 09:00 and 13:00 Classic Whale Watching tours. Make sure to dress appropriately for the tours as it is always colder on sea than on land.

CLASSIC WHALE TOUR | 09:00
Report from Eldey: We left the harbour meanwhile the sun was slowly raising. The sailing was pleasant on the way out with the wind in our back. There was a bit of light rain during the tour but that did not scare our passengers that stayed outside for most of the tour. We spotted a blow in the distance and tried to slow down to find the whale. We spotted the blow again and got a little bit closer until the humpback whale surfaced a few times on our left front side. We could see the white pectoral fins through the water and follow the whale swimming under the surface. Then it had a other breath and went for a deep dive showing us its tail. The animal was moving a lot around the bay trying to find itself a nice breakfast but could still see it 3 or 4 more times sometimes just the blow and sometimes the tail going down in the water. We were running out of time so we went back to the harbour.

CLASSIC WHALE TOUR | 13:00
Report from Eldey: It was predicted to be a rainy afternoon but instead we sailed out in a beautiful light. The swell was still quite big but very long so it was calm sailing. As we got out into the bay we saw a blow and went to take a closer look. It was a humpback whale, the same one we saw in the morning. Then we saw another blow on the otherside of the boat! Another humpback whale! It seemed they were taking turns coming up to the surface as when one went for a deep dive, the other would appear. We watched these two whales and then even saw two minke whales in the mix as well. When time was up we headed back to harbour and encountered the rain just before arriving.
