What a day for whale watching, the sea state was good and the cetaceans we saw were active. In the morning tour we sailed out and had a really good time with a Minke and a Humpback whale. Both of them gave us a great time. Later today we sailed out to the entrance of the fjord and there we encountered few Humpback whales, one of them was breaching up to twenty times and pec slapping with it's flippers, that was a whale we call Mystery. Did you know that humpback whales breach or jump is as a form of communication to distant groups of whales? They also do it to get rid of parasites such as barnacles from their body.
