Eyjafjördur, humpback whales, two tours with a full boat, a dry sky and some fun swells were the formula for a successful day today. On our morning tour we saw a minke whale and six humpback whales between Hjalteryi and Grenivik and that is where the whales would stay for the rest of the day. Fjall, Cascade, Arnar, Whaliam Shakespeare, Tattoo and Grenade came close to both Holmasol and Solfar in different formations. Great shots, experiences and also hearing experiences were almost guaranteed for everybody when the humpbacks exhaled loudly nearby. Quite a few swells kept us busy holding on while watching cetaceans, but also made the encounters and sailing extra fun. We really enjoyed our time out at sea today and are looking forward towards the rest of August.
