Bloody cold with the wind chill, and through no fault of the excurson team - there was only a sighting of a fin or two from a whale. Four hours of frost bite and no proper sighting - Them's the breaks.

Nice (and rather brisk) cruise out into the fjord to find the long humpback (they feed singly, not in herds) but with the snow-top hills and mountains of the fjord providing the backdrop, it was a great tour.
