We went out on one special tour at 9 o’clock today in the morning and had a lovely sunrise tour with freshly fallen snow. Like a soft blanket the snow had covered the surroundings of Eyjafjördur. Our ticket office and Holmasol. It truly created a special atmosphere that seemed to have translated onto the whales. One minke whale and approx. 10 humpback whales were seen close by and from the distance. At the beginning the whales were diving for long times so it was a bit difficult at first to get up close and personal, but at the end patience paid off and we got really close and nice looks of these gorgeous cetaceans. Manu, Jackson, Tough Pella, Miso and possibly Bad ‘Awesome’ Fluker could be seen close enough so that we could identify them. All of that in front of a fantastic scenery highlighted by pink sunrise accents.
