Monday, August 15 dawned sunny and a light southwest breeze indicated that we had again been lucky with weather. Tobias Hillier, the owner of White Island Boat Tours, gave a great tour through a maze of icebergs that the Petermann “ice island” had been calving off over the past few days. He told us this was the best sailing day of the summer and he brought us close to countless icebergs. We also saw a couple of minke whales but even more impressive were the soaring gannets that would plunge like a spear into the water to catch fish. White Island Boat Tours is based in St. Lunaire-Griquet and he gives 3 tours a day at 10:00 am, 1:00 pm and 4:00 pm (ph. 709-623-2112 for information).
