I have no words for Eyjafjördur today as we clear could estimate about twenty to twenty-five humpback whales, just up to North of Hjaltery. We only have to sail to find humpback whales everywhere. They were swimming in different sites; groups of two, three, four, and seven whales, and also single ones. However, the best news as we have new humpbacks enjoying the fjord together with our known humpback whales from the last two weeks. At the end of the first tour, everybody was just amazed by the moment that seven whales went diving one after the other as a queue of seven flukes just in front of us! Furthermore, we could also spot many seabirds during all the tours (mainly arctic terns, northern fulmars, kittiwakes, and skuas). A very impressive day with the Eyjafjördur whales.
