The weather forecast for whole Iceland was not too promising today, but luckily the surrounding mountains around the fjord offered us enough shelter from the wind so that we could go out on two tours. On each tour it rained here and there, but never really strong and we could enjoy 4 to 5 humpback whales in the morning and in the afternoon. Compared to yesterday the whales had move further out and we had to sail almost till Hauganes to find our first blows. A few individuals were busy feeding and we had a really good time watching them coming up frequently very close to the boat. The whole day Jackson, Sai and Karo, three of our regulars at the moment, seemed to collaborate in order to herd fish together. A very interesting and equally entertaining thing to observe. We returned to the harbour a bit wet, but happy.
