This morning we had a very special encounter in our Whale Watching tour with a very curious group of False Killer whales. These animals can be 6 meters long and usually travel in groups of 10 to 20 individuals 🙂

They are known to be quite active and to frequently approach boats, and this morning we could see that! A False Killer whale stayed right next to our boat almost still and posed for the camera of one of our clients! 😀 Check it out in the video above!

Unfortunately, the wind got a bit too strong during the afternoon and we had to stay on land 🙁

Keep tuned for more news of our tours! 🙂
