Orcas on today's tour. In snowy winter weather today, the enthusiastic crew and passengers on board Sylvía eagerly searched for whales but keeping expectations low due the conditions. But as we always say, wild nature is indeed unpredictable.

The leading German model ship magazine ModellWerft has just published a detailed front page article featuring a model ship inspired by Gentle Giants boat Faldur.
It certainly was a great surprise when we received a copy of the newest issue of the ModellWerft magazine yesterday, where Faldur plays a major different role.

It's that time of the year again!
The month of August has come to an end, opening up to new opportunities of seeing rare visitors in the bay.

The summer is far from over, but the sun is setting below the horizon again and that means that we can see spectacular, dramatic and colourful sunsets at night.
The period with 24 hours of daylight is a very special one, but this period in August can be truly magical as well.

We have had the immense pleasure of witnessing bubble net feeding humpbacks in the Bay lately.
Everyone is waiting patiently for these gentle giants to emerge and all of a sudden big bubbles start appearing at the surface: at first just a couple, then more and more forming a circle.
