Today begun quite grey dull and grey with clouds covering most of the sky. The clouds soon disappeared and the sun lit up the fjord. On the way out small groups of 2-3 harbour porpoises were seen popping up underneath gulls that were interested in the porpoises movements, although they seemed to be traveling rather than feeding. We searched in all the areas that have been successful in recent days but no whales seemed to be in the fjord. We rounded the north side of Hrisey and a call from another boat said the may have seen something, but after waiting sometime it seemed like a false alarm. Unfortunately no large cetacean species today and complimentary tickets were awarded.
