    Ondanks de regen op het eiland hadden we een droge tocht met de zodiak de zee op. Er was eerst gecheckt of varen wel veilig was en of er beesten te zien waren en toen gingen we op pad. Helemaal droog bleven we niet, want er spatte flink wat water in de boot, maar toen de 1e walvis verscheen waren we dat snel vergeten. We hebben meerdere walvissen gezien en een grote groep dolfijnen. Echt een geweldige ervaring!
