Cetaceans: Blue Whales in the South Atlantic.

During late March and April 2017 I was fortunate enough to take part in the Atlantic Odyysey, repositioning from the Antarctic to the Arctic. Our ship was the Dutch ice strengthened mv. Plancius.

The Seabird and Cetacean sightings were incredible, we had an amazing encounter with thirteen Blue Whales, they stayed with us for over three hours and gave fantastic views and photographic opportunities.
