The day started with a very unexpected warm morning, almost giving the impression of a real summer, with over 15 degrees! And we had such pleasant trips sailing out in the calm waters of the fjords. For being in Iceland I must admit that we can not complain, we really got the best weather conditions we could desire! The humpback whales around us then created the perfect and magical atmosphere we look for in all our whale watching tours. A total of three humpback whales have been seen on our tours today, showing a lot of confidence, surfacing often very close to the boat. Our passengers could get amazing shots of the whales, in particular of their beautiful flukes, and some of them tried to compare their pictures with the ones present in our catalogue, with all the humpback whales seen in the fjord in the last 3 years. It is not always easy or possible to find a match, but they made it, and it was one of our passenger today that found out that one of the whales we saw was "Roquefort", an old friend from the last summer season!:)
