Dolphinatly, a great day to be out on the fjord. The conditions were just lovely, the sea was calm, very little wind and not too chilly. As we were sailing just past Hjalteyri, a large pod of white-beaked dolphins popped up and came super close you could even see them swimming right under the waters surface. The pod was at least 30 strong, with mothers and calves. As we were watching them some even began to jump out of the water, showing us their whole bodies. One even leaped out of the water three times in a row, doing something called inverted breaching, where they jump and then turn in the air, absolutely spectacular to watch!
