We sailed out with cloudy and very windy conditions. There was a frosty bite to the wind because during the night it had actually been snowing. So in the fjord we could see the snowy caps on the mountains again. During the morning tour the sun starting coming through giving us amazing views of the fjord. We had to sail out for quite a distance before we spotted our first whale. It was a new individual that we encountered for the first time a few days ago. The animal seemed to be travelling, it moved big distances under the water during every dive. So it was quite challenging to follow the animal, luckily we did manage to get good views of it. We spotted a second whale, it was Fjall. During the afternoon tour we spotted Donald Hump, Jackson and the new individual.  Donald Hump was very relaxed and allowed us to get some great close up views.
