Fantastic day in Bleik Canyon with many sperm whales around !

13.07.12

We left today with a beautiful sun and a flat sea ! We had the privilege to see a lot of puffins, both on Anda Island, in the sky and on the water. They were everywhere. Up to 20 seals were basking in the sun on their rockeries. We saw also razorbills, guillemots and kittiwakes. Then, as soon as we arrived on the whales’ ground, we heard a sperm whale on the hydrophone. It was very loud so we knew the whale was quite close. We were lucky to see this whale twice and also an other one who dived very elegantly in front of our boat. What a beautiful day in the Norwegian seas !
