"I wish there was a way to know you were in the good old days before you actually left them."

Our season is still in full swing, but that doesn't mean we can't look back and take 5 minutes to realise how great it has been so far and in so many aspects.

We won't repeat our praise for the beautiful weather, but clearly we had nothing to complain about in that area. Species wise it has been very diverse and the only whale species that we still need to tick off is the fin whale. But other than that we have seen them all, including orcas, blue whales, long finned pilot whales, sei whales, sperm whales and northern bottlenose whales.

As always, our guests have been wonderful and it was a pleasure sharing our whale & dolphin passion with so many enthusiastic and friendly passengers.

And before I forget, I also want to mention the entire Gentle Giants Whale Watching team. What a wonderful group and what a bunch of lovely, hard working, unique and interesting characters!

But enough now with the sentiment, time to go back to the seas, observe more lovely whales & dolphins and continue life in those good old days!
