We sailed out in cloudy but mild conditions. The frosty wind from the previous days had left and we now had an almost warm wind. So there was not much need for our overalls today. After a 30 minute sail, we encountered our first humpback whale. It was King Louis, an animal that we saw the first time in 2016 and that has been around for the last few days. King Louis showed us its beautiful flukes several times. In the distance we spotted another individual, it was Fjall a humpback whale that has been in the fjord for the entire summer season. Both Fjall and King Louis were very calm and stayed at the surface for a long time, they even approached the boat several times giving us great close up looks.
