Eyjafjördur today was overcast and raining in the morning, but as the whales are not worried about being wet, we were expecting a great encounter. From early morning till late evening we always observed five humpback whales including "Grenade", "Fjall", "Giljagaur", "Vivian", and our favourite fluke among all - "Tattoo". They were in a group of four individuals, and only "Grenade" was alone. The whales were showing the flukes several times, and all them in the same area not far from Akureyri. We could enjoy a group of four humpbacks diving syncronized with the flukes "waving us". Some groups of harbour porpoises also made their appearance in the morning tours.
