Eyjafjördur today was overcast, bit cold, but flat seas in the morning. We simply sailed to Hjaltery to find humpback whales. When we were looking out on the morning tour, we spotted the humpbacks "Cascade" and"Fjall". They were serene and swam slowly. We had also a group of harbour porpoises close to the whales. In the afternoon tour the wind decided to increase, but so the whales. There were four humpback whales in different sites. We had the previous whales and also "Arnar" and "Giljaguar". By the same token, "Giljaguar" decided to breach just in front of us! Everybody was just amazed by this amusing jump! Despite the weather a pleasant day with the Eyjafjördur whales and the breaching.
