Very nice:)

Looks like the whale isn't moving at all at the beginning.

Thanks!

I think we saw 6-7 whales, they just take some breaths and then they dive to the abyss (1 km deep or so) catching giant squids and come up to the surface after 20-40 minutes... some breaths and back down again. The place is called Bleik Canyon.

What a perfect whale watching ride ! You saw them well. And the White-tailed Eagles too (I still haven't watch any). And even the sun shows up in the end !

Yep, 6-7 whales and about 10 eagles! There's a treasure in the end of a rainbow...

What kind of whale is he? The scenery there is spectacular. I loved the harbour seal who was napping on his side.

Big Sperm Whale males, they are feeding around these waters (northern Norway/Bleik Canyon)
