The day started raining in the morning, but with "fair winds and following seas". We sailed towards the north, and just fifteen minutes sailing we already spotted some blows on the horizon. They were two humpback whales just to start. After this encounter, we spotted more two groups of three humpback whales each, and some whales are well known by us as "Tatoo", "Dark Night", "Cascade", "Jackson" and many others that have been seen in the fjord since last week. We finished the tour encountering more two groups of two whales each, plus more blows further that we had no more time to explore. Summing up, about fifteen to seventeen humpbacks were sighted. However our best moment of the day was the afternoon Express Tour, where we could face just in front us a triple humpback breaching - a remarkable day!
