Today began quite grey with clouds covering most of the sky and raining. However, the wind was really light and the sea was beautifully flat. On the way out, only a few minutes after leaving the harbour, one humpback whale was seen popping up and its blow was very clear. The whale was calm and seemed to be travelling rather than feeding, showing its fluke sometimes. The humpback breached once, which was a pleasant surprise. 
We searched in the nearby areas and another humpback whale showed off, as many harbour porpoises. In such flat seas is much easier to spot porpoises. We could enjoy more time the presence of these beautiful cetaceans, as the landscape. After been snowing in the past few days the mountains are covered in ice, enhancing the beauty of the fjord.
