Beautiful golden light poured over the fjord today, lighting up the cool water in a glimmering glow. The conditions were very good and the cetaceans delightful. Humpbacks were the first species spotted and we watched as Loftur the humpie, delighted us with some wonderful surfaces. White-beaked dolphins were then spotted in the distance and when closer to these amazing animals, we saw there were multiple mother and calf pairs some of which came right up to us. The pod was very large and spread throughout the whole fjord. We were able to watch these animals throughout the whole tour and even saw them breaching and leaping at one point which was just fantastic. More humpbacks then joined the party and we spotted another 5 individuals surfacing all around us. Another spectacular day to sail on the fjord.
