I think satellite remote sensing is about as close to seeing whales as I am ever going to get. Another weekend spent waiting for news from the boat captain in Baltimore, West Cork. Cancelled at the last minute due to bad weather. That is the 4th or 5th time it has fallen through I think? I wouldn't mind but today is supposed to be the start of a heat wave!
I'm not giving up though - October is supposed to be the best time of year for whale watching in SW Ireland and I will be back then.
