Sperm whale deep in Bleik Canyon

11.07.12

 

Today, the trip around Anda Nature Reserve was perticularly nice because we got to get very close to the cliffs where the birds are. So we had a close look at the puffins, the guillemots and the razorbills. We were lucky too to see many harbour seals resting on the rocks, up to 20 ! Afterwards, we continued our safari to Bleik Canyon to spot the whales. We went very far into Bleik Canyon, it was 2 000 meters deep under us ! It took us a bit of time to find the sperm whale even though we could hear some very well. Finally, we found a magnificent sperm whale who showed us a slow and high fluke up before diving.
