When I started guiding you would hardly see any whales at all. Ok, the occasional Minke Whale or groups of Beluga’s, but no large whales. Until 2008 I had only seen a few Fin Whales and one time a group of Bowhead Whales. Now we see large whales nearly every trip. And amongst them even the largest of them all, the Blue Whale. During this trip we twice had at least two Blue Whales, one time in Kongsfjord and one time in Isfjord. On both occasions we could watch them from a reasonable close distance and see nice behaviour. One was showing its fluke several times, which is rare in Blue Whales, another was surfacing sideways, showing its pectoral fin and throat grooves. Hopefully this trend will continue and we keep on seeing those magnificent animals.
