PorpoiseTour with Mira3
The population of harbor porpoises in Lillebælt is one of the greatest in the world. We cannot guarantee the encounter of the small whales, but usually we meet them more than once.
One thing can be guaranteed though, and that is the beautiful sight of the Old and the New Bridges of Lillebaelt, just out of Middelfart and the beauty of the landscape as seen from the seaside.
We do not set out on a fixed course, but try to track the porpoises.
During the trip our guide will tell you tales of porpoises and sights we pass.
