We sailed north with astounding conditions, the water was smooth, and there was almost no wind. The landscape of Eyjafjordur was stunning on both tours. Just around Hjalteyri, the old herring factory, we encountered our first humpback whale. It was "Cascade", an animal that we encountered often this summer. There were many whales in the area, and we decided to stay around and sail to other humpbacks. We met "Alli", our "whistle blow" whale, and three different humpbacks were also spotted. During afternoon tour we joined the same individuals in the same area. We can't complain about the weather and the whales in October in Eyjafjordur!
