First minke whale sighting of the season!

Passengers and staff spotted the first whale of the season on the route from Newcastle to Ijmuiden this week.

The team aboard KING Seaways, the DFDS ferry from Newcastle to Ijmuiden, had another great week in the North Sea with harbour porpoises, white-beaked dolphins and even a tantalising glimpse of a minke whale.

We've also had plenty of fun in our brand new Wildlife Centre on board with dozens of families joining us to learn more about marine conservation.
