Text and Pictures by Anna Gunnarsdóttir

We started of the day very early, earlier than our usual scheduled tour to fit in a tour before our Superbreak group had to fly back home. It was very cold -9.3 degrees Celsius and even colder in the wind. Every one made use of the warm free overall on board, hot drinks and heated saloons so our passengers could keep warm. Others were determined to stay out as long as they could. We went to the same area the whales were the day before however they must have moved further north than we could travel. Unfortunately we were unable to see any whales on this tour so we offered all our passengers complimentary tickets to come again for free in the next two years. Despite no whales it was a very beautiful sail with the stunning landscape, and birdlife: little auks, common guillemots, eider ducks, cormorants, long-tailed ducks, glaucous gulls were plentiful.
