Perfect evenings on the King of Scandinavia

Summer is really setting in now the nights are getting longer and the sunsets are getting better.

On the evening of the 14th June I had a feeling the sightings were going to be good. Around 6.30 pm, I had my first sighting of a Harbour Porpoise just off the starboard (right) side of the ship.

Once I had opened the Wildlife Centre, I kept one eye on the window, this paid off as I had sightings of Bottlenosed Dolphins, Common Dolphins and even more Harbour Porpoises.

Because the sightings were so regular I took the passengers from the Wildlife Centre and carried out a small deck watch with them.

The evening was so clear that I kept seeing them until 11pm.
Come and join us and discover the wonders of the North Sea.

We also had fantastic views of Gannets.
