On our way to Storholmen, we saw two minky whales. One was even very close before it rose high out of the water for a deep dive. Unfortunately, I was not able to take better pictures. We were in a small zodiac and the moment I turned around I pulled the safety court of the engine and the engine stopped. It was already a special experience to start with a boat full of water, which would empty automatically during the trip.
Later during our work on the island, a pod of belugas came close. We could hear the blows clearly.
