It was a lovely warm day today in Eyjafjordur, sunny and not a lot of wind. We did not need to travel far to encounter 4 humpback whales together. It was amazing to see a group of 4 animals again, swimming together and diving together. The animals popped up several times right next to the boat giving the passengers a bit of a scare. We knew two of the individuals, they were Donald Hump and Tattoo. When we moved further into the fjord we found two other animals one of which was Fjall. We also encountered another whale type in the fjord today, a Minke whale. It is always nice to see a Minke whale because we do not see them often. 
The passengers on the rib boat got an amazing treat seeing a humpback whale head slapping and breaching.
