After few days in a row with good sighting success, it's safe to assume that the whales came back in number in the Fjord! Even if the wind slowly picked up all day long, we still got easy sailing, sunshine and gorgeous scenery. Overall about 7 different individuals of humpback whales were seen today. We had Lumière, back in Eyjafjordur after disappearing for a couple of month, pairing with Georgio in the morning, and in the afternoon we had Donald Hump, Fjall and Tattoo traveling together. In addition we also sighted Pepper with its beautiful dark fluke, and met again Avalanche, who we reckonized from last year, with its 2 biting marks on the tip of each flukes! Times to times we also caught glimpses of crazy porpoises kamikazing in the front of the boat! Needless to say that we had a great time sailing today!
