As mentioned in a previous blog, whale watching was a matter of luck. This trip turned out to be a lucky day. Not only were the whales as curious about us as we were about them, but also playful.
One reared up on its tail to take a long look at the excited crowd on the boat, me among them. They slid under the vessel, rising to make me scream with joy at one point.
I had hoped to see icebergs as well but it was already too late in the season. However, after the whale experience, nothing could put a damper on the day.
