A REAL SUMMER DAY

Temperature ca. 19°C, calm, good sea conditions and many whales. A perfect day for whale watching! After cancelling our trips yesterday due to bad weather, we were able to go out today in beautiful weather conditions, with a lot of whales in the bay - blue whales, humpbacks and a large pod of white beaked dolphins!        A busy day today in the good weather and many people joined our tours.
