Whale watching: We wanted to be there but not disturb the animals
We didn't just jump straight in the water as soon as we spotted the whales for the first time. We wanted to be there but not disturb the them, so we spent a whole day just watching the whales from the boat. And the first time we got in the water, we didn’t see any whales at all. But after a few tries, they came to us. They looked at us, swam around us and then moved on. My pulse was racing. It was out of this world. And I wasn’t afraid. It was intense – seeing these creatures was an unforgettable spectacle. When they swim and glide through the water, it feels so harmonious. It seemed as if they were doing their thing and would look to see what we were doing before getting back to devouring their herring.
After almost a week, we spotted our first killer whales. The feeling when you see orcas is simply fantastic. The way they swim and move in the water is spectacular. And given the coronavirus pandemic, there were no whale watching boats on the water this year. So we were almost totally alone with them. It was just us and a few fishing vessels.
