Tuesday 6th of January
The orcas are still here!
The weather was not exactly what the forecast announced – lots of snow instead of full sunshine. But the most important thing was that we found them!
Going out to Vestfjord we saw a fishing boat and our driver Paal called them to ask if they had seen orcas this morning. The answer was negative, but he would inform us if he saw something. And only a few seconds later he called back with the message that he saw some whales.
Just outside Lødingen we found a group, or it could also be two groups. They were easy to follow and since they were swimming on both sides of the boat everyone had a very good view on them….between the snowflakes. Even when they were close to the zodiac it was almost impossible to take pictures due to the snowstorm. But very nice to see them in this weather as well. We followed them for a while, heading out of Vestfjord. When we were a little cold and returning to the harbour, we found another group on the way in to Tysfjord!
Again several groups in the area today! We are so happy with that! Happy tourists, happy captains, happy crew:)
