Total number seen : 9 orcas
Per Ole, the captain of the Leonora said that a big research boat have whales just 4 nautical miles away west of Barøya but they were traveling toward Ofotsffjorden very fast. We saw the orcas briefly and then they dissapeared. We've lost them for almost 40 minutes. Together with the research boat and some other boats we spread out over a wide area but no whales. Then closer to Tysnes they showed up again and all of us got a close look once more.
