We sailed out with amazing conditions blue sky and sunshine and mirror smooth waters. We quickly spotted our first humpback whale, it was Tattoo, an individual that we have been seeing a lot the past few weeks. Tattoo behaved a bit elusive, coming to the surface shortly and taking long dives. We decided to move further in the fjord and near Hjalteri we spotted a Minke whale. We do not see this animals often so it is always a bit of a treat to spot one. We watched the animal come up several times and then we spotted two blows in the distance. There were two humpback whales moving together, they were Arnar and Cascade. They came up several times very close to the boat and moved very synchronized. During the midnight tour we were so lucky to spot this pair again but this time with an amazing sunset in the background.
