Do you sometimes see big whales and pilot whales?

Sightseeing - WhalesWe have spotted pilot whales and schools of pilot whales on several occasions. We have also seen big whales quite often. In particular, Silja with its tall fly bridge, is ideal for spotting whales from a great distance. We have, on a few occasions, been so lucky to be the first boat to spot a school of whales. In such cases, the boat gets a whale after the slaughtering.
