This day was a great example of how fast the weather conditions can change here in Iceland. In the morning we were blessed with sun shine and a pretty flat sea while in the afternoon we had to deal with rather strong winds, waves and even hail - winter is back. On both tours we saw humpback whales and in the morning also harbour porpoises. In did take us some time to find a humpback whale in the morning but then we could spend some quality time with a very relaxed individual. In the afternoon we had to head out a bit further to the North where we encountered four humpback whales that were not shy and sometimes were just meters away from the boat. Awesome!
