The storm is still keeping the whole of Iceland on their toes as well as the area around Eyjafjördur. Nevertheless we had very eager Vikings and so we decided to give it a try and go out. Snow was falling constantly and the visibility was rather limited, however this did not stop us to find our first humpback whale after about an hour of sailing. We got a few nice looks, but since the whale did dive for many minutes we decided to go further out and made it all the way to Hjalteryi before we had to turn around. On one occasion we had spotted another humpback whale but could not find it again. Many passengers stayed outside for almost the whole tour and were rewarded when all of a sudden the humpback whale Harley Dafinson popped up in front of us not far from the harbor. We were of course super happy to see it and everybody could enjoy good looks of its fin and fluke. A very nice ending to a bit bumpy tour.
