April Fools and Orcas are still fooling around the Fjord! This morning we had perfect conditions, clear sky, flat sea and full sun. We sailed out from Akureyri and again headed out all the way to Olafsfjordur, to find a family of Orcas. It was a different group from the one we’ve seen yesterday. Four individuals were active but keep staying together. We stayed with them longer than we usually do and the tour was ended in Dalvik instead of Akureyri. Thanks to that we were already much closer to the destinated area in the afternoon and next tour was simply stunning. We found the same orcas family that we’ve seen yesterday and we were able to see two more families further in the distance. Today we officially extended our spring schedule and from now on we’ll be going out on the tours at 9:00 and 13:00 giving us more chances to observe wildlife of Eyjafjordur!
