Eyjafjördur today was a gorgeous day, flat seas and many whales. We only have to sail to Hjaltery to find humpback whales. When we were looking out on the morning tour, we spotted three humpbacks that we already know: Dark Night, Graffiti, and Tatoo.  They were swimming in different localities and showing their flukes many times, and the pictures were amazing with flat seas.  In the afternoon tour, there were the same whales, however now they were swimming together with another well-known individual,  Giljagaur, and they were feeding. Everybody was just amazed by the moment that the whales came close to the vessel's bow when it was stopped. Furthermore, we could also spot a minke whale further north. A very exciting day with the Eyjafjördur whales.
