We combined the puffin safari and a whale safari. The first day we went on the puffin safari. Our guide Marten Bril kindly explained all wildlife we could encounter. The sea was still rough from 3 days of storm, so he prepared us for what was to come. We sailed out and he steered us professionally through the waves. We were 2 adults and 3 kids. Our youngest is only 7 and he thoroughly enjoyed it! When we arrived at the bird island in Bleik we were awestruck by the number of puffins, being chased by white tailed eagles. Unforgettable. We stayed out for more than 3 hours. when we returned to base coffee, tea and excellent home made cake awaited us. The next morning we went on a whale safari. Our captain explained the care he needed to take when approaching the whales. In the end - even though there were 2 other bigger boats - he positioned us perfectly. We saw 4 whales (well actually we saw 2 whales, 1 of them resurfaced 3X just for us). We stayed out for almost 3,5 hours. Not only seeing the wildlife but the trip in itself was magnificent. Again we received tea, coffee and great cookies. Marten is a photographer so even if you can't take a picture you can always buy his. All get wetsuits & safety vests.
