Two sperm whales in Bleik Canyon in the afternoon trip of Arctic Whale Tours

10.07.12

We left Stø around 4:00 pm and stopped at Anda Nature Reserve on our way to Bleik Canyon. We saw lots of puffins and kittiwakes and also some black guillemots and shags. There were 4 seals resting on the rockeries. Then we headed to Bleik Canyon to spot the sperm whales. We found two quite close to each others. The first one we spotted dived first and then we just moved a little bit towards the other one to see it diving. We saw fantastic diving tails in the soft and beautiful light of the sun.
