Today’s weather conditions were completely the opposite compared to yesterday. We started with a sunny sky and very calm seas and finished with rain and wind blowing from the North. This of course didn’t stop us from going out and finding humpback whales. The whales were mainly in the area between Hjalteryi and Hauganes where they were busy feeding on the rich fish stocks. Grenade, Tattoo, Bibliotheka, Fjall, Pepper, Enghelbert and Arnar made sure that we had close up and personal encounters with nature on each of our tours with a minimum of 5 Eyjafjördur humpbacks on the morning tour. There is nothing better than if it is the whales themselves which approach us and come very close. After all, we want to do whale watching on the whales terms here in Akureyri and that is what we got. So we definitely had a great day on this Tuesday.
