Today the sun returned to the Eyjafjordur, so we sailed out with the sun on our faces. The wind however has a frosty bite to it today so heads and cloves were needed. Close to the old hering factory Hjalteri we encountered two humpback whales together, Tattoo and Fjall. They were very relaxed, staying at the surface for long times and moving together. When we sailed out in to the fjord we encountered two more whales swimming together of which one was Cascade. Also these two animals were moving slowly and very relaxed allowing for some very good views and pictures. We also spotted a individual by itself further out. So there were at least 5 whales in the area during the entire day.
