We had an incredible day today! We heard from a fisherman that he had seen a group of orcas close to Stø and we hurried out to find them.  On our way to Anda island we spotted the first group and when we drove closer we realized that there was more than one pod in the area. As we followed the different pods we had some really nice sightings. Some orcas were swimming very close to the boat, and some were even spyhopping to get a better look at us! One group was feeding by circling the fish and stunning them with the tail. We stayed with the groups for more than an hour and after that we went to Anda to see the birds.

Anda was full of bird activity, as usual, and today we saw a white-tailed eagle trying to catch puffins.

Here there is a video of today: http://youtu.be/d0GsZ1RaSNc
