Report from Hafsulan: We sailed out in this sunny morning hoping for the best. After coming across multiple large flocks of sea birds, we had a hard time finding our first sighting of the day. A pod of 4 white-beaked dolphins appeared briefly to us but fled almost as quickly. We finally found a zone were a massive amount of seabirds were feeding, moving in masses. We spotted 4 minke whales stealthily lunge feeding as the birds followed them. Sadly, all of these sightings were not visible enough to all passengers as the whales stayed very much under the surface. We decided to hand out complimentary tickets, so that all could get a better chance to see these cetaceans.

Report from Hafsulan: we set off with clear skies and a refreshing breeze coming from the north. after a bit of a travel we spotted our first minke whale! It surfaced a few times quite close to us so after staying with this one for a bit, we happily set off, trying to find out what else the ocean had in store for us today. Not too much later, we were rewarded with " pods of white beaked dolphins! These ones were quite social and we could hang out with them for some time, until we decided to leave them again. After this, we sailed back to the harbor with the wind in our backs and the sun in our faces.
