Today we will be operating on our lovely vessel Eldey for the 13:00 Classic Whale Watching tour. Make sure to dress appropriately for the tours as it is always colder on sea than on land. The sea conditions are rough so we are offering seasickness tablets free of charge in the office.

Report from Eldey: After a day and a half cancelled because of strong wind we could finally go out trying to find some whales in the bay. There was a bit more than a meter of swell but the sailing was not unpleasant with the wind on our back. The sky was dark and covered in very thick clouds with a little bit of light rain. We needed some time before spotting a blow. It was only one blow but we trusted our guts and waited there. Then we spotted a pod of 7-8 white-beaked dolphins swimming toward us with some speed, making little splashes at the surface. They went behind us but then we spotted the blow again in front and decided to focus on the humpback whale that was producing those blows. This individual was tricky, moving between areas, only surfacing once before going for a dive without showing any sign of deep dive. We struggled a bit but could see it a couple of times coming to the surface and one time a fluke dive with a high tail out of the water. We were running late and went back to the harbour.
