The Killer Whales are back! Today’s tour was definitely one of the best ones we had this year. Again we had to go quite far out, this time we went all the way beyond Olafsfjordur but it was absolutely worth it. We found a family of Orcas travelling together. Killer whales are known to travel in family groups and this time we were able to notice two younger individuals among the group. Three whales were inseparable and almost synchronized in movements most of the time and two more were moving around them. At some point it seemed that they became curious about us and we had an incredible encounter when they approached the boat from the side and we could observe them just meters away. In total we've seen 5 orcas today. Amazing experience!
