Sunshine, whales and views for days! Lovely conditions for whale watching today on Eyjafjördur, very little wind and beautiful warm sunshine. The humpback whales were in the fjord to meet us and spend the day feeding south to Hjalteyri, so just a short boat ride away! Aretha Franklin (black fluke with a white patch on the right side), Depill (black and white fluke with barnacles growing at the extremities) and Kind Louis (white and grey fluke) spent their day circling the area to enjoy our local Icelandic plankton. They couldn't get enough! Slightly more distant in the morning but coming rather close to the ship and the RIB in the afternoon. Another good day in the fjord!
