Thanks bertwert! It was very easy to get good shots there. 360 degrees of beautiful scenery.

Plenty of great scenery to take in. The whales would only be a distraction.

Thanks henrik! In this case the whales had already been spotted and they just were not sure where they were coming up next.

Yes, when they rose to the surface it was pretty exciting. The gulls gave it away, they would flock to the spot the whales were coming up because they were pushing the fish to the surface.

Yes, it was great, but the whales were very impressive when they reached the surface in a group.
