It’s an unforgettable trip into the world of whales and sea birds. The various types of whales commonly sighted include mink whales, white-beaked dolphins, harbor porpoises and the popular humpback whales. You will be accompanied by sea birds such as gannets, guillemots, cormorants,  arctic terns, and many more.
