Sailing out on our 11 o‘clock tour today was exiting as always, we had a cold wind but every one was dressed for the occasion and ready to head out to the sea. The sea condition was good and so was the weather. Close to Grenivík we encountered six humpback whales all close together from each other, we saw them in few groups, first in a group of three, then one humpback close by and last but not least two humpbacks in the end of the tour. Pepper, D‘Artagnan, Jackson, Lopapeysa and Tough Pella could be seen close enough so that we could identify them. Yet another exiting tour with lots of activity from our humpback whales here in Eyjafjörður today.
